Bill Providing Oversight to Every Student Succeeds Act Education Plan Passes Ohio House

COLUMBUS—State Representative Theresa Gavarone (R-Bowling Green) on Wednesday announced that the Ohio House has passed legislation that would give the legislature additional oversight regarding the state’s education plan under the federal Every Student Succeeds Act of 2015 (ESSA).

 

House Bill 235, sponsored by Rep. Gavarone, requires the Ohio Department of Education (ODE) to submit a written copy of the state plan required by ESSA to each member of the House and Senate education committees. This plan must be submitted no later than 30 days before it is implemented.

 

“Giving the legislature more oversight over something as important as the state’s education plan is one of the best things we can do for our constituents,” Gavarone said.  “This will allow the people of Wood County and the rest of Ohio to play an even bigger role in the state’s education policy and I applaud my colleagues for passing this legislation out of the House.”

 

The bill also includes a measure that would prohibit ODE from putting the plan into effect should the legislature disapprove the plan through a concurrent resolution.

 

House Bill 235 now awaits consideration by the Ohio Senate.
