Frequently Asked Questions - ESSA Consolidated State Plan

On June 16, 2017, the U.S. Department of Education released a brief guide containing questions pertaining to the review of state consolidated plans under the Every Student Succeeds Act. This document provides information on the type of feedback states will receive in regards to submitted consolidated plans, including information on resubmitting plans for approval. 

For states looking to submit consolidated state plans in the fall window (due by September 18, 2017), the U.S. Department of Education will host webinars in summer 2017. These webinars will discuss the issues identified during the first round of review by state peers and by the U.S. Department of Education.
