Sign Up for the Maryland Education Plan Listening Tour

The Maryland State Department of Education is organizing a series of open meetings on ESSA, the Every Student Succeeds Act and Maryland’s Draft State Plan for ESSA


A series of meetings across the State will provide overview information on ESSA, the Every Student Succeeds Act, and allow participants to engage in a group discussion regarding Maryland’s Draft State Plan for ESSA.

Each ESSA feedback session will include a welcome and an overview to the Every Student Succeeds Act. Participants then choose specific topics to discuss in small groups. Within the small groups, participants will be provided an overview of the selected ESSA topic and then engage in discussion questions surrounding the topic.
