Federal FY17 Budget

With his final State of the Union address presented earlier this month, President Obama's FY17 budget request to Congress is expected *around* the first Monday in February (though it could be issued anytime between the first Monday in January and the first Monday in February).

Since it's the final budget request of his administration, the President's request is important in at least two ways:
  1. As a policy document, it signals what's most valued by the administration; and
  2. we can expect to see some clarity around implementing ESSA
The federal fiscal year is the 12-month period beginning October 1, ending September 30.
