PED is grateful to the hundreds of teachers, parents, and community leaders who gave of their time to provide meaningful and constructive feedback during our listening tour. As PED develops the state plan, there are several steps which we can pursue immediately in response to the feedback provided, and there are several other areas of feedback and input that you will see reflected in the state plan.
