01:15 PM -- Update from CDE

The committee came back to order. Katy Anthes, Interim Commissioner of Education, Colorado Department of Education (CDE), came to the table. She distributed a copy of her presentation (Attachment C), and several additional handouts to the committee (Attachments D, E, and F). She discussed the timeline for implementation of the ESSA state plan, as well as the ESSA listening tours and ESSA Feedback Report conducted by CDE. Dr. Anthes discussed CDE's stakeholder engagement process, and answered questions about the ability of legislators to be involved in the development and implementation process. She spoke about the draft rules released in the early summer by the U.S. Department of Education (department), and the feedback CDE provided to the department on the proposed rules. Dr. Anthes concluded her presentation by explaining that the meetings are open to the public, and that CDE will be implementing some electronic ways to provide feedback.
