Ingram Comments On Ohio's Updated "Every Student Succeeds Act" Plan
Ohio to submit ESSA plan in September
Posted August 09, 2017 by Minority Caucus
 
 

State Rep. Catherine D. Ingram (D-Cincinnati) today announced her position on the updated Ohio Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) plan which will be submitted to the U.S. Department of Education in September.


Every Student Succeeds Act, which replaced its predecessor, the No Child Left Behind Act, is the federal requirement for states to submit plans regarding the use of federal educational funding for school curriculum.


“After several revision and updates, there is still much work to do, and Ohio’s ESSA proposal is not perfect,” said Ingram. “However, there has been some improvement in the overall plan, and there is now much more agreement in certain sections of the proposal than there was during the debates in April.”


Every State educational agency had the choice to submit its ESSA proposal in either April or September. Ohio’s plan is being prepared to submit by the September deadline.


Ohio’s ESSA plan can be viewed online at www.educationa.ohio.gov/ESSA.

While this division reveals the many imperfections of America, like Dr. King, I do not believe it defines us.
