Columbus ESSA Stakeholder Meeting


 Wednesday, August 31, Columbus ESSA Stakeholder Meeting sponsored by the Philanthropy Ohio


The Thomas B. Fordham Institute is proud to co-host this ESSA stakeholder meeting for the central Ohio region.  Your input will be vital as the state redefines accountability in the post-No Child Left Behind era.


Engage in a regional meeting to share your thoughts and perspective on the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) and Ohio's developing state plan. This meeting is an exciting opportunity to gather valuable input from various perspectives from local educators, funders, parents, students and community members. The meeting will include an introduction from state superintendent Paolo DeMaria, a brief overview of ESSA and group discussions around specific provisions and options.


ESSA, which passed Congress with bipartisan support and was signed into law by President Obama on Dec. 10, 2015, replaced the No Child Left Behind Act. It has shifted broad authority from the federal government to state and local agencies, providing them with greater flexibility and decision-making power. Ohio's state plan, which is required by ESSA, will be submitted to the federal government in 2017 and will address topics such as standards, assessments, accountability and assistance for struggling schools.


This regional conversation is one of a series of conversations Philanthropy Ohio and its members, in partnership with the Ohio Department of Education, are convening across the state.


To be held from 6 to 8 PM EDT (Registration at 5:30 PM) at The King Arts Complex, 867 Mt. Vernon Avenue, Columbus, Ohio
