After more than a year of work creating Colorado’s implementation plan for the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA), CDE received approval from the state board at their April meeting to submit the plan to the U.S. Department of Education (USDE).

In March, CDE was notified by the USDE that a state that wants to be considered in the early review window will have up until May 3rd to secure the required signatures and submit their ESSA plan. CDE expects to submit the plan soon.

Once submitted, USDE will have 120 days to approve the plan.
