ESSA Parent Survey Available—Please Share
One key feature of the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) is a requirement to engage a broad range of stakeholders in developing state plans. The Michigan Department of Education (MDE) has released an ESSA-related survey designed specifically for parents. The survey asks questions relevant to Michigan’s ESSA plan and includes topics such as student assessment, school accountability measures, teacher and leader quality, and supports for struggling schools.
Please consider taking the survey if you are a parent of a school-age child. We also hope you will assist us in engaging as many parent voices as possible in the ESSA planning process by sharing the survey link below with any parent networks to which you have access. Any Michigan parent or guardian with a child in grades PreK-12 qualifies to participate.
The Michigan ESSA Parent Survey will remain available through November 18, 2016.
