Every Student Succeeds Act Advisory Teams


The ESSA requires a state accountability plan, which will outline the state’s strategies for implementing key requirements of the new law, including accountability and school improvement. The New Hampshire Department of Education will be seeking broad collaboration in formulating this state plan. The following initial advisory teams will be critical in formulating this plan. The Department will add advisory teams on topics if and as needed.

Accountability Task Force
