Montana’s Draft State ESSA Plan
Superintendent Arntzen has released Montana’s draft state plan under the federal Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) for public input. This draft is the result of strong collaboration between the Montana Office of Public Instruction (OPI), education stakeholders, policymakers, tribal leaders, and our diverse schools, businesses, and communities across the state. Montana’s plan will put Montana students first by creating a comprehensive system of individual school accountability, promoting long-term student growth, and moving beyond the strict federal mandates of the previous No Child Left Behind Act. OPI welcomes continued input from all Montanans about how we can best serve our students. The plan can be viewed here.
