MREA encourages members to be the voice of Greater Minnesota Education with new opportunities to serve on MDE Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) Advisory committees and on the Board of School Administrators (BOSA). See details below. Application deadlines are approaching quickly.

ESSA Stakeholder Engagement

While Minnesota’s Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) state plan is still under federal review, work will begin soon in a few important areas: dashboard and data reporting; the school quality and student success indicator; and school recognition. MDE is putting together a stakeholder committee with three subcommittees to focus on these topics. Focus groups will also be held beginning early 2018.

MDE invites participation either on a committee or a focus group, or both. View the registration website for more information and sign up by November 20.

Learn more about the ESSA state plan page, including an executive summary of the plan.

Board of School Administrators

The Board of School Administrators has 1 opening each for a community member, superintendent, and public member. View openings.  Applications may be submitted online and are due November 27 to be assured of full consideration.

Learn About Joining State Board

The State of Minnesota is hosting information sessions to learn about joining a state board or commission. The state will visit seven cities, which include Bemidji, Duluth, Worthington, Rochester, and St. Cloud in November and December.

Attend an information session to meet others who have served, hear about current opportunities and learn how to apply. Light refreshments will be provided.
