LAE'S INVOLVEMENT IN LOUISIANA'S ESSA IMPLEMENTATION

The LAE team recently prepared a summary of feedback gathered from a recent series of statewide meetings. We will submit this summary to the Governor's Advisory Council on ESSA in order to provide the group with authentic community input from across the state.

IMPORTANCE OF STAKEHOLDER VOICES

We all know how important educators’ voices are in expressing the needs of the public school children they serve. Here in Louisiana, we are organizing to 1.) make sure that we are included in all decisions affecting education under the new ESSA law, and 2.) to ensure our critically important viewpoints are heard. LAE has prepared the necessary background materials to assist in this important endeavor. Please check out the Louisiana-centric Implementation Toolkit provided below for more information:
