Your Indiana Library Federation, our members, and many partners submitted comments about the important role that school libraries play in achieving goals within the plan. School libraries are critical to English and math proficiency, school improvement plans, cost effective professional development for teachers and support for ALL students, including English language learners, students with disabilities, high-ability students and disadvantaged students.
The Department of Education will update and submit the final plan to the federal government in September. Additionally, the
Interim Study Committe on Education
of the Indiana General Assembly will study ESSA later this summer and fall.
