OSPI spent much of 2016 bringing together the state's education stakeholders, including WEA, to help prepare the state's Consolidated Plan for ESSA. The state released a draft plan in the fall of 2016 for public comment and spent most of 2017 refining the plan before releasing a second draft to the public and submitting a final draft to the Department of Education on September 18, 2017. Washington's plan was approved by the Department of Education Jan. 6, 2018.
