TEA Seeks Input on ESSA Implementation

Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly version Share this

The Texas Education Agency (TEA) has launched an online survey offering parents, taxpayers and the general public an avenue to provide input on the state's implementation of the federal Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA). The deadline for completing the ESSA Public Input Survey is November 18.

ESSA, which is the new federal law governing K-12 education, replaces the No Child Left Behind Act and returns a significant amount of decision-making on education policy to the states. TEA is developing the Texas state plan which will determine how the new law will affect accountability, funding, school improvement, and grant-making systems.

TLA's TASL-Legislative Committee Joint Task Force on ESSA is working on talking points suporting the inclusion of school libraries in ESSA implementation for members to use when responding to the survey.  More information will be provided next week.

For additional ESSA resources for school librarians, please visit the TASL Advocacy Resources page.
