Wisconsin’s DRAFT Consolidated Plan Now Available for Public Comment

DPI has published a first draft (Version 1.0) of our state plan application under the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA).  It is available at www.dpi.wi.gov/esea, along with a survey instrument to gather public input on the draft.  The survey will be open until the end of June, and in May we will be announcing listening sessions to be held in June.

This is an opportunity to provide comments about the important role of early childhood in the scope of ESSA.
