ESSA: What it means for NC?
NC Teacher Voice Network Update May 2016
NC Teacher Input Needed
The North Carolina State Board of Education and Department of Public Instruction need to develop their own plan to comply with the new federal legislation. They are seeking stakeholder input around the following questions.
- What are the public’s expectations from NC’s public schools?
- What school characteristics are the most important?
- How should school success be measured?
- How does North Carolina ensure that all schools are successful?
- How should North Carolina recognize and celebrate school success?
Teachers, make sure your voice is heard!
