Throughout September the New Jersey Department of Education is planning several ‘Public Listening Sessions’ on implementation of the federal ‘Every Student Succeeds Act’ (ESSA).

The sessions will provide opportunities for interested groups and individuals to:

  • Discuss how NJ state and district may best implement specific areas of existing and new federal law. Build on ongoing community engagement about standards, assessments , educator policies and strategic plan
  • Provide targeted feedback, through focus groups and public comment, on NJDOE proposals for initial implementation (201718) and beyond
  • Receive updated and accurate information about implementing ESSA and share best district practices for implementation plans
