Over the past two years, the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education and other entities have commissioned research projects to better understand implementation progress and stakeholder perceptions of several key state education initiatives, including the new curriculum frameworks, educator evaluation, and PARCC. Taken together, the studies show that implementation of these initiatives continues on a positive trajectory. The studies also provide useful feedback to the Department on opportunities to further refine our initiatives and to strengthen our supports to the field. At the meeting of the Board of Elementary and Secondary Education on March 24, Associate Commissioner Carrie Conaway will share a summary and highlights of the findings from these various reports.
