ESSA Update


The Iowa DE Task Force developing Iowa's ESSA (Every Student Succeeds Act) Implementation Plan is holding three more listening meetings across the state this fall and we are seeking school librarians and advocates to speak up at these meetings. All meetings are at 5 p.m. and start with about a 30-minute presentation and then the meeting opens up for you to speak. Make sure to check in when you get there so you can speak.

Here are the dates for the remaining statewide listening sessions:
  • Wednesday, Nov. 2 - Grant Wood AEA, Cedar Rapids
  • Monday, Nov. 7 - Great Prairie AEA, Ottumwa
  • Wednesday, Nov. 9 - AEA 267, Cedar Falls
If you are interested in attending one of these meetings, please complete this survey:
