ESSA Community Forums

Five ESSA Community Forums/Fora are being hosted by the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education. The first Forum is this Monday, November 14 from 6:00-7:30 PM (details for all Forums/Fora below).

Each Forum provides an opportunity for stakeholders to join in a regional discussion and share ideas on how to improve K-12 public school assistance, accountability, and engagement, so that schools receive the supports they need to benefit each and every student. A stakeholder is anyone with a stake in the success of all students in our K-12 public schools, including:
  • Parents
  • Students
  • Teachers
  • Principals
  • Superintendents
  • other education administrators and personnel
  • community members
  • business leaders and entrepreneurs
  • community organizations
  • faith-based communities
  • Statewide organizations and associations
  • post secondary public and private colleges and universities
  • paid or elected public service individuals and committees
