ESSA Consolidated State Plan Development

This community of practice (CoP) helped participating state education agencies (SEAs) craft thoughtful, ambitious consolidated state plans with feedback and support from peer states and subject matter experts (SMEs). The CoP supported each state team in drafting key sections of their plans by…

  1. Equipping states with expertise related to their key priority areas.
  2. Engaging states in consultation with SMEs that resulted in action plans and relevant next steps to prepare for plan submission.
  3. Sharing examples of states’ approaches to selected sections of consolidated state plans to inform states participating in the CoP and other states in their plan development.
