U.S. Department of Education releases final regulations for Accountability and State Plans

Source: National School Boards Association

Six months after proposing draft regulations for Accountability and State Plans and four months after the public comment period closed, the U.S. Department of Education posted the final rule on its website Monday morning. The 483-page public document has not yet been officially published in the Federal Register, but goes into effect on January 30, 2017.

The National School Boards Association filed extensive recommendations on the draft rule and also conducted an in-person meeting with the Office of Management and Budget to provide additional comment and reiterate concerns expressed in the formal public comment.

The Department issued a press release, fact sheet, and a timeline for identification of schools for support and improvement, in addition to the rule itself.
