Final Regulations on State Plans

The U.S. Department of Education today released final regulations to implement the accountability, data reporting, and state plan provisions of the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA).  

CAPE had an interest in these regulations, expressed in the attached letter dated June, 21, 2016.  I am happy to report that the changes we requested were implemented in Sections 299.14(c)(4) and 299.15(a)(13).  The first requires state plans to include an assurance of compliance with provisions relating to the participation of private school students and teachers, and the second identifies representatives of private school students among the stakeholder groups with whom a state education agency (SEA) is expected to consult.

If you really want to get into the weeds on this, you can discover details about how these private school issues were considered during the regulatory feedback process by searching for “private school” in the document.
