State Schools Chief Tom Torlakson Announces Release of Draft ESSA State Plan, Invites Public Review and Comment



SACRAMENTO—State Superintendent of Public Instruction Tom Torlakson announced the release of California’s draft Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) State Plan today along with a schedule of workshops and Webinars to review the plan and collect public comment.
ESSA is the new federal law passed in December 2015 that governs U.S. education policy for kindergarten through grade twelve. States are required to submit plans to the U.S. Department of Education that describe how they will meet various federal goals.
California released its draft State Plan online today at the California Department of Education’s (CDE) Draft ESSA State Plan Public Comment Toolkit Web page. The page includes the entire draft of the ESSA State Plan split into sections, videos that summarize each plan section, and a public comment survey to gather feedback on the draft plan. The toolkit also contains a facilitator guide for groups that want to host their own local stakeholder events on the plan.
Comments, questions, recommendations, or other correspondence concerning California’s ESSA State Plan can be submitted to the CDE by e-mail at ESSA@cde.ca.gov. The public comment period runs from May 22 to June 30, and all interested members of the public are encouraged to submit input. The public forum and Webinar schedule follows:
