Accountability Restart Survey and Webinar for the 2021-22 School Year

The New York State Education Department (NYSED) is accepting stakeholder input on possible modifications to New York State’s accountability re-start plan for determining school accountability based on results from the 2021-22 school year.  To seek input from teachers, principals, superintendents, parents, and other stakeholders, NYSED has developed “A Survey for Possible Accountability System Modifications for the 2021-22 School Year.”  The online survey submission form has options to be translated in languages other than English.

NYSED is accepting responses to the survey through 5:00 PM EST on April 29th.  The survey link can be found on the NYSED School and District Accountability webpage under the banner titled “Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) Accountability Restart.”

To help inform survey feedback, NYSED has also prepared a webinar, “Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) Accountability Restart Webinar for the 2021-22 School Year.”  The informational webinar is available on the NYSED School and District Accountability webpage.  The webinar provides an overview of the recent accountability waiver denial, flexibilities and constraints given by the United States Department of Education (USDE) for restarting the accountability system, and a description of the state of the accountability indicators in the 2021-22 school year.

NYSED appreciates your valuable input.  Any questions related to the survey and/or webinar can be sent to
