Title: Regional Listening Tour 2016


1
Regional Listening Tour 2016
2
Purpose for this Listening Tour
  • With change comes opportunity
  • a chance to sharpen our collective vision for
    education and improve, innovate and strengthen
    our public schools and
  • a chance to share ideas on what is most important
    to improve student learning and how the state can
    best support schools to serve the needs of
  • all students.

3
Purpose for this Listening Tour
  • The purposes of these forums are
  • to gather input from New
  • Hampshire citizens about
  • what you value in your
  • educational system and
  • to provide a high level overview of the Every
    Student
  • Succeeds Act (ESSA) and future engagement
    activities.

4
Agenda for the Evening
  • Provide a quick high level history of the United
    States major federal education law.
  • Focus on our educational values (listening
    session).
  • Wrap up with next steps in our engagement
    efforts.

5
History of ESEA
  • The Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA)
    was signed into law in 1965 by President Johnson,
    who believed that "full educational opportunity"
    should be "our first national goal." From its
    inception, ESEA was a civil rights law.
  • ESEA offered new grants to districts serving
    low-income students, federal grants for textbooks
    and library books, funding for special education
    centers, and scholarships for low-income college
    students.
  • Additionally, the law provided federal grants to
    state educational agencies to improve the quality
    of elementary and secondary education.

6
No Child Left Behind
  • The ESEA was last reauthorized in 2002 as No
    Child Left Behind (NCLB).
  • NCLB exposed achievement gaps among traditionally
    underserved students and their peers spurred an
    important national dialogue on education
    improvement.
  • This focus on accountability has been critical in
    ensuring a quality education for all children,
    yet also revealed challenges in the effective
    implementation of this goal.

7
Flexibility Waivers
  • In 2012, the U.S. Department of Education began
    granting flexibility (ESEA Flexibility Waivers)
    to states regarding specific requirements of NCLB
    in exchange for rigorous and comprehensive state-
    developed plans designed to
  • close achievement gaps
  • increase equity
  • improve the quality of instruction and
  • increase outcomes for all students.

8
Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA)
  • The Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) replaced
    NCLB in 2015
  • ESSA gives states and districts additional
    flexibility and encourages innovation, while at
    the same time holding us accountable for results.
    The new law
  • Advances equity by upholding critical protections
    for America's disadvantaged and high-need
    students.
  • Ensures that vital information is provided to
    educators, families, students, and communities
    through annual statewide assessments that measure
    students' progress toward college- and
    career-ready standards.

9
ESSA continued
  • Helps to support and grow local
    innovationsincluding evidence-based and
    place-based interventions developed by local
    leaders and educators.
  • Maintains an expectation that there will be
    accountability and action to effect positive
    change in our lowest-performing schools, where
    groups of students are not making progress, and
    where graduation rates are low over extended
    periods of time.
  • Requires states to submit an accountability and
    support plan in order to receive funds to support
    state initiatives.
  • Before we write we listen!

Regional Listening Tour Questions

    educational system? How would you like for the NH
    Department of Education to support that
    expectation?

want know about the quality of the schools and
the level of student learning and success? Would
you want to be able to see how the schools are
