Meeting to discuss Every Student Succeeds Act at SC BOCES

On Thursday, March 9, the Sullivan BOCES Region, in collaboration
with the New York State Education Department, will hold a public
input meeting on the federal Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA.)
This session will take place from 5-7 p.m. at the Sullivan BOCES
Rubin Pollack Education Center, 52 Ferndale-Loomis Road, Liberty,
NY.

Pre-registration is required and can be made by calling
(845-295-4016).

Members of the public, parents/families of school-age children,
K-12 educators, Sullivan County school board members, students,
local business owners, members of the higher education community
and representatives of civic organizations, are invited to attend
to provide their feedback on the State’s ESSA educational plan.

The Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA), which replaced the federal
No Child Left Behind Act (NCLB), is set to take full effect in the
2017-18 school year. New York, along with the other U.S. states,
will be submitting plans to the federal Education Department that
outline the educational goals on issues they have set for their k-
12 students.

These goals must address: proficiency on tests, English-language
proficiency and graduation rates.
