We believe OSSE can play a unique role in sustaining, accelerating, and deepening the progress being made in DC education by successfully carrying out these four key priorities:
OSSE will provide high-quality data and analysis that will empower Local Education Agencies (LEAs), Community Based Organizations (CBOs), and providers to meet the needs of all learners and allow education partners to make informed policy decisions. [Explore this priority]
OSSE will work with our education partners to set high expectations for program quality and align incentives to accelerate achievement for those learners most in need. [Explore this priority]
OSSE will provide responsive, consistent, and considerate customer service to free up LEAs, CBOs, and providers and allow them to focus on instruction and support for students. [Explore this priority]
OSSE will attract, develop, and retain top-notch talent to build a highly effective state education agency that makes a meaningful contribution to DC education. [Explore this priority]
The development of this plan would not have been possible without the inspiration and support of our staff, numerous Local Education Agencies (LEAs), Community Based Organizations (CBOs), providers, and education partners. We are incredibly grateful for their support.
