NAESPA Submits Comments on ED's Draft Equitable Services Guidance

In a March 25, 2019 letter to Secretary DeVos, NAESPA President Sonya Morris (FL) writes, "The National Association of ESEA State Program Administrators (NAESPA) appreciates the opportunity to comment on the draft equitable services guidance put forth by the U.S. Department of Education (ED) earlier this month. Some of the questions and answers contained in this document are particularly helpful – especially those regarding specifics on the mechanics and timing of consultation and participation of equitable private schools. However, NAESPA also has a number of concerns surrounding both this guidance document and the process under which the organization is commenting."
