Department of Elementary and Secondary Education
The Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (ESE) is committed to preparing all students for success in the world that awaits them after high school. Whether you are a student, parent, educator, community leader, taxpayer, or other stakeholder interested in education, we invite you to join us in this endeavor.
We are guided by this mission...
"To strengthen the Commonwealth's public education system so that every student is prepared to succeed in postsecondary education, compete in the global economy, and understand the rights and responsibilities of American citizens, and in so doing, to close all proficiency gaps."
And by these goals...
* Strengthen curriculum, instruction, and assessment
* Improve educator effectiveness
* Turn around the lowest performing districts and schools
* Use data and technology to support student performance
