NSBA Asks the Department of Ed to Support Local Governance in Accordance with Congressional Intent to Restore State and Local Decision-making Authority in K-12 Education

Alexandria, Va. (September 9, 2016) – Today, the National School Boards Association (NSBA) expressed support for local governance and asked the U.S. Department of Education (the Department) to amend the proposed regulations to remove provisions and requirements that exceed the scope of the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) and minimize the emphasis on federal compliance by providing an opportunity for state leaders and local school board members to focus on the academic success of students. The Department also should delete provisions in proposed rules that are unnecessary, outside the scope of ESSA, and establish regulatory requirements that effectively limit the authority of state leaders and local school board members.
