MA DESE and ESSA Stakeholder Outreach

The Elementary and Secondary Education Act requires state education agencies engage with stakeholders – students, parents, educators, community – in developing their new accountability, funding, school improvement and grant systems.

The Council of Chief State School Officers has developed a robust set of guidelines designed to accelerate stakeholder engagement. Check them out!

Have you had the opportunity to engage under the Massachusetts ESSA stakeholder outreach plan?

Did you get a change to respond to the Accountability and Assistance Feedback survey?

You can also send an email with your thoughts on how to improve school and district support by sending an email to esea@doe.mass.edu .

You can also follow along at home by keeping up with the work of the School and District Accountability and Assistance Advisory Council (AAAC).
