AASA Call to Action: ESSA Accountability

Earlier this summer, USED released their proposed regulation for the accountability and state plans provisions under the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA). These regulations, once final, will guide the implementation of the ESSA accountability provision. Now is the time to weigh in, to provide feedback for USED to consider as they review and revise the proposal into its final form.

AASA reviewed the proposed regulation and  shared our summary and analysis last month. This call to action is designed to support our members in their work to respond to this proposal. 

CALL TO ACTION: Your voice matters. Please take the time to personalize the template form. Insert you district letterhead, and follow the prompts (in italics) in the template for types of information to share to personalize the response. Feel free to add on or remove content based on your read of the regulations and our analysis. The important thing is that you weigh in. All comments must be filed by August 1, 2016. 

  1. Access AASA’s template response.
  2. Personalize the draft letter as appropriate, including district/association letterhead.
  3. Save the form.
  4. Submit the form. You cab submit it through the regulations.gov online portal OR you can email it to Noelle to file for you. In your email to Noelle, sent no later than Thursday July 28, please use the subject line ‘File ESSA Comments’ and list your name, title, district/association, street address and email address.
