Join in the conversation and contribute to Ohio’s Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) plan. This event is sponsored by Philanthropy Ohio, the Ohio Department of Education, The Greater Cincinnati Foundation, KnowledgeWorks and United Way of Greater Cincinnati.
This is an important opportunity for leaders from different audiences to collaborate and jointly offer input. Attendees will include local educators, funders, parents, students and community members. The event will include:
- Aan introduction from state superintendent Paolo DeMaria
- An overview of ESSA
- Discussions around specific provisions and options.
ESSA, which passed Congress with bipartisan support and was signed into law by President Obama on Dec. 10, 2015, replaced the No Child Left Behind Act. Earlier this year, to help stakeholders think outside the box, we've released two resources to explore how to use opportunities in ESSA to advance personalized learning.
- "New Opportunities to Advance Personalized Learning in the Every Student Succeeds Act" offers side-by-side comparison of NCLB and ESSA, as well as ideas for using ESSA to advance personalized learning.
- "Recommendations for Advancing Personalized Learning Under the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA)" is a guide for imagining and implementing a vision of personalized learning that aligns federal, state and local policies.
