Feedback requested from Accountability and Standards Spoke Committees

By Jessica Hollingshead, Executive Director Support, Federal Programs Unit
Wednesday, November 30, 2016 - 10:20am

The Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) Accountability Spoke Committee/Accountability Work Group requests your feedback, by Wednesday, Dec. 14, on key accountability decision points needed for implementing ESSA.

The Accountability Spoke Committee recorded a series of presentations that you can watch, or read through at your own pace using the provided PowerPoint, on each decision point. With each presentation is a survey for your input. The specific decision points available for comment now are:

  • English learner assessment policy (First year in US)
  • Long-term goals and interim measures
  • English learner progress measure(s)
  • “Other indicator” of school quality or student success
  • Minimum number of students
  • Method for identifying and exiting schools for support and improvement

To view all decision points, descriptions, presentations, and surveys, please visit our Accountability feedback webpage.
 

In addition, the Standards Spoke Committee requests your feedback, by Wednesday, Dec. 14, on the Standards section draft.  The Standards draft section addresses the ESSA requirement to provide evidence that Colorado has adopted challenging state academic standards, including challenging academic content standards and aligned academic achievement standards; as applicable, alternate academic achievement standards; and English language proficiency standards.
 
Please note that content for this draft only addresses standards requirements of ESSA and is separate from state-driven standards review and revision process. Please visit our Colorado Academic Standards Review and Revision website for more on that process.
 
You can find the ESSA Standards draft survey here.
