Call to Action!

Dear CTE Professional:
It is critical that 
Family and Consumer Sciences Educators
 Take Action 

On July 11th, 2016 the New York State Department of Education opened a survey for feedback on the Development of the State Plan for the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA). NYSAFCSE membership has the opportunity to voice concerns and provide feedback.  


Background Information: 

On December 10, 2015, President Obama signed into law the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA). ESSA reauthorizes the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) and eliminates much of the prescriptiveness of the No Child Left Behind Act and the ESEA Flexibility Waivers. On May 26, 2016, the United States Department of Education (USDE) released draft regulations outlining requirements for the state accountability plan and for implementing ESSA. The draft regulations stipulate that extensive consultation with stakeholders occur in the development of the state plan. New York SED released a survey to collect feedback on the Draft Characteristics and Guiding Principles for Accountability. 


Who should respond to this survey?

All Career and Technical Educators, Students, Parents, Administrators, School Counselors, Business Partners, Entrepreneurs, and Community Members. 


Please complete this survey by August 26, 2016. Attached to this email are revised question responses from the survey. You can copy and paste right into survey monkey for the correlated questions. Feel free to elaborate or change as needed. 


Thank you for your prompt response to this matter.  Here is the link to the survey.

The National Family and Consumer Sciences Learning Standards are being updated. The revisions need to be vetted by the field. This is an opportunity for us to provide input on the proposed revisions, through a survey.

The goal is 100 respondents for each area.  The areas of study highlighted in yellow are in critical need of survey respondents. The survey will be open until August 16th, 2016.
