ESSA Work Groups
The Oregon Department of Education (ODE) launched a comprehensive and collaborative effort to develop Oregon’s State Plan for the implementation of the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA), the newly reauthorized Elementary and Secondary Education Act.
From April through June 2016, the ODE brought together four central work groups to help inform the development and implementation of Oregon’s State Plan in four key areas: Standards and Assessment, Accountability, School and District Improvement, and Educator Effectiveness. Work group members were selected through an application process. For more information on each work group, visit the pages below.
