VDOE’s “Every Student Succeeds Act” Survey

The Virginia Department of Education (VDOE) is asking for feedback about Virginia’s plan to implement the new federal Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) of 2015. ESSA provides states with flexibility to improve accountability systems and overall approaches to school improvement. School accountability systems evaluate schools based on multiple factors and provide important information to school administrators, teachers, parents, and the community about school performance. The purpose of this survey is to identify those factors, also referred to accountability indicators, that you think are important to know about schools. This survey should take approximately 5-10 minutes to complete and your answers are anonymous. Thank you for your feedback.
