  • Assessment Advisory Panel - Seeking Parent and Student Members

    The Assessment Advisory Panel serves the purpose of advising DEED on issues related to the design, development, and implementation of an effective and secure statewide comprehensive assessment system and corresponding accountability and support systems. The panel engages in discussion around key assessment topics and activities, providing essential input and feedback to DEED. Members also assist DEED with information distribution and promotion across the state as part of the effort to support schools and districts.

    DEED is currently looking for parent and student members to serve on the AAP. Interested parties (you can also nominate someone!) should send a letter of interest to Elizabeth. For more information, please review the Family and Community AAP Recruitment. This document can also be shared with your district or other organizations.

    For the 2022-2023 school year, the Child Nutrition Program will be required to charge for meals. For the past two years, the USDA granted waivers that allowed students to eat at no charge. Those waivers have expired. Please click HERE to fill out an application for your student to receive Free or Reduced meals.
