More schools across the state will receive academic help under the proposed new accountability system under the federal education law.
The Minnesota Department of Education, including commissioner Brenda Cassellius, visited Denfeld High School Wednesday night to talk about the new plan and get feedback. Required by the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) — which replaced No Child Left Behind — the plan must be submitted to the U.S. Department of Education for approval in September. It would be in effect for the 2018-19 school year.
