TASA and 48 Other State Administrators’ Groups Oppose USDE-Proposed ESSA “Supplement, not Supplant” Regulations

11.01.2016 — An AASA letter to the U.S. Department of Education signed by representatives of 49 statewide administrators’ groups expresses concern with the Department’s proposed regulations related to the “Supplement, not Supplant” provisions of Title I in the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA).
The letter, sent last week, states that the regulations dictate how local school districts must spend their state and local funds and conflict with the spirit and intent of the underlying statute, which is premised on state and local control. It urges the Department to review and revise its proposed regulations to ensure they are consistent with statutory intent and focus.
