ISBE Listening Session (for Student Succeeds Act)

Every Student Succeeds Act Statewide Listening Tour Round #2

ISBE is holding a second round of listening tours at 13 sites around the state to gather feedback to the draft of a State ESSA Plan.  The session in our area is:

Wednesday, September 7

4:30-6:30 PM

Moline Senior High School

3600 Avenue of the Cities, Moline

We need your help in providing this feedback as the State Board is interested in hearing from IEA members.  Please see the attached piece that outlines IEA’s best thinking about a State ESSA plan (this has been approved by the IEA Executive Committee) (9.7.16 MtgInvite/RoundTwoTalkingPoints). 

We want to make sure that we have members ready to speak at these sessions and hope you’ll help us with this project.  We’re happy to work with members if they need help with remarks.  What we need from you is a personalized appeal to the State Board and a personal story explaining how ESSA will impact your lives in the classroom and why this is important to you and your students. 

Please contact our office (309) 797-4126 OR email if you’re planning to attend and if you’d like any assistance in preparing remarks to the Board.
