The Colorado Department of Education will begin a process for the public to provide feedback to the ESSA drafts and recommendations through an online survey. Of particular importance are comments related to specific ESSA decision points and those related to new ESSA programs, new program flexibility and substantive changes to programs. Most windows will be open for two weeks or more, but may vary based upon the draft stage.
Surveys for online feedback for options and recommendations on Accountability decision points and a draft section on Standards will open starting November 30, 2016 and ending on December 14, 2016. Additional windows will be announced in the ESSA newsletter and posted to our ESSA Feedback Schedule and Submission webpage on a rolling basis. This will ensure CDE has adequate time to review the comments, incorporate them as appropriate and prepare a final draft for review by the State Board of Education.
