While the U.S. Department of Education has not yet announced exactly when it will accept state plan submissions, Alabama anticipates submitting its plan in spring 2017. Alabama’s Plan will be aligned to the goals and strategies in Plan 2020. When creating the plan, Alabama will consult regularly with stakeholders. During the fall of 2016, the Alabama State Department of Education along with the Governor’s established Task Force will hold several topic area meetings to explore the Every Student Succeeds Act with large, diverse groups of stakeholders. During the spring/summer of 2016, we will host monthly meetings with specific workgroups on key topics who will contribute significantly toward the components of the Alabama State Plan.
