No sooner do I post an article about Odyssey than an email comes in from an Odyssey parent who is fed up with their Board!

The Delaware Way announced the Delaware ESSA Advisory Committee membership yesterday. First off, a very big thank you to the Delaware Way for letting me know about this! Once again, their first meeting is tonight at Legislative Hall in Dover, beginning at 6pm. Just go to the House Majority Hearing Room. Even though the General Assembly is not in session, there is still a security checkpoint when you enter Legislative Hall. So I would try to get there five minutes before the meeting. As well, I put in a request to a few members, the Governor, Secretary Godowsky, and others to put this up on the live streaming from the General Assembly website. I don’t know if they will be able to honor this request since it won’t be held in either of the two main chambers, but it never hurts to ask! Without further ado, here is the group and their meeting schedule:
- Wednesday October 19, 2016
- Thursday November 17, 2016
- Wednesday January 11, 2017
That is one big group! I was very happy to see representation from Delaware’s Native American population. There are some surprises on here. I know many of these people but there are a few I don’t. I see a lot of big players. Some of these members I am not happy with, AT ALL. I have to wonder how many of these members will financially benefit from Delaware’s state plan for ESSA. Because at the end of the day, that is what ESSA is all about.
