The Delaware Department of Education shared its next draft of the state’s Every Student Succeeds Act plan for public feedback.

The updated document reflects the input the department received from community members and other education stakeholders at a series of community conversations and through discussion groups, the Governor’s ESSA Advisory Committee, online surveys and submitted written comments.

The department also has created a framework document that provides context around the department’s related work. Narrated slides also provide an overview of the changes between this draft and the Oct. 31 version.

The final plan will be submitted to the U.S. Department of Education in April.

The public has several opportunities to learn more about the plan and share feedback and ideas in the coming months. An electronic feedback form to collect feedback is also posted. Two ESSA discussion groups also continue to meet, as does the committee.

Information about these opportunities is available at Feedback and questions may be emailed to

Public comment on this version of the draft will be accepted through Feb. 10.
