PA ESSA Public Tour

The Department of Education (PDE) is holding a series of public events to engage the public on important education topics in Pennsylvania.

The primary focus of these events will be the Every Student Succeeds Act, the federal education law signed by President Barack Obama in late 2015. A senior leader from the department will provide background on the law, and discuss the ongoing development of Pennsylvania's State Plan for its implementation, which will be submitted to the U.S. Department of Education in 2017.

Feedback is important to PDE; to provide the best avenue for public comment as well as provide an opportunity for those who cannot attend an event, members of the community are encouraged to review materials and offer comments.
