U.S. Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos has approved South Carolina and Virginia’s consolidated state plans under the Every Student Succeeds Act.

Elements of South Carolina’s plan include a differentiated model for meeting interim targets based upon each school’s baseline, as well as nine measurements of a student’s college and career readiness. The plan also includes a student engagement survey that aims to increase students’ voices in the state’s educational accountability system.

“South Carolina’s ESSA plan embodies our vision that every graduate is prepared for success in college, career and citizenship,” S.C. Superintendent of Education Molly Spearman said in a news release. “This vision is carried out using multiple metrics to deliver rigorous and personalized instruction to every student.”
