CHARLESTON, W.Va. – The West Virginia Department of Education (WVDE) announced a series of regional stakeholder meetings to discuss the state’s Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) plan.   The meetings will include a brief informational session and an open question and answer session.  All stakeholder meetings are open to the public.
Events will take place at the following dates and times:

June 19, 5:30 p.m.
Lewis County High School
205 Minuteman Drive

ESSA was signed into law in December 2015, replacing the No Child Left Behind Act. The federal legislation represents a shift from broad federal oversight to greater flexibility of primary and secondary education at the state and local levels. ESSA requires all states to develop plans that address standards, assessments, accountability and support for struggling schools. West Virginia will submit its final plan in September 2017.
