In 2015, Nebraska developed and submitted the Nebraska State Equity Plan in response to a federal directive. In 2016-2017, the Every Student Succeeds Act presented Nebraska with the opportunity to revisit the content of the plan submitted in 2015.
The updated Nebraska Equity Plan was submitted as a component of the Educator Effectiveness section of the Nebraska State ESSA Plan. The US Department of Education and ESSA Peers provided only positive feedback in response to the Educator Effectiveness section of the Nebraska State ESSA Plan.
As such, one might assert that Nebraska has completed Goal 7.1. However, our increasingly equity-focused organization recognizes that there will always be room for improvement with the content of our state Equity Plan as well as rigor of implementation of the Equity Plan.
