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.

ESSA Negotiations: The Rulemaking Begins

During remarks to the negotiated rulemaking committee, in the first hour of the first session, U.S. Secretary of Education John B. King, Jr. said, “Regulations that come out of the process (the work of the Committee) will define how we implement the law (Every Student Succeeds Act, ESSA) for years to come.” Indeed. If the nation wants a brighter future for America’s students, we must establish rules that are grounded in local knowledge and expertise.
