ESSA Consolidated Plan Review
Remember No Child Left Behind? The Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) replaced NCLB and Washington State is revising its State Education Plan based on the new law.
During the month of November, you will have an opportunity to learn more about the draft plan and provide public comment on it.
Food System Engagement Events
A thriving food system provides many benefits such as access to healthy, affordable, and culturally appropriate food; economic security to growers, farm workers, processors, distributors; and protections for the environment to sustain ecosystems for future generations.
The Washington State Food System Roundtable is hosting engagement events across the state to collect feedback from diverse community members about their draft plan for a sustainable food system in Washington.
