Breaking News on ESSA Guidance
Yesterday, the Department of Education hosted their annual conference for non-government schools and made some news about equitable services guidance.
During a panel on the new ESSA law, one of the Department staffers assured us that
guidance on equitable services would be out "in time for consultations this school year."
Considering the Administration must get its substantive work done before the next President comes into office, I take this to mean we will see something by December or early January.
Kudos to Sr. Dale McDonald of NCEA for asking the pertinent question.
In anticipation of this guidance, please be sure to read up on
ESSA Transition for Catholic Schools
and to watch Sr. Dale and I's
on the law.
