Additional Comments on NYS ESSA Plan
Progress on the finalization of the NYS ESSA plan continues. Last week, the plan was transmitted to the Governor for his review. Federal law requires that the plan be sent to him, but his approval is not required for SED to submit to USED. NYSSBA shared comments on the plan with the Governor, as we have with SED throughout the process. Our most recent comments can be viewed below.
