Preguntas Frequentes - cierre de escuelas y noticias



RIDE is requesting a waiver from requirements included in the Elementary and Secondary Education Action of 1965 (ESEA), as amended, in the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA). These two federal laws include the requirements states must follow to implement their state assessment and accountability systems. Approval of this wavier by the United States Department of Education (USED) would suspend the parts of these laws that apply to the state assessment, accountability, and school improvement systems.

Rhode Island rises to the challenge

Commissioner Angélica M. Infante-Green

All across Rhode Island, our teachers, school leaders, families, and especially students are rising to the challenge of making education happen during challenging times. I want to personally thank all of you for going to great lengths to make sure learning goes on in the Ocean State.

I can think of no better way to show the nation that we are committed to “Turning Hope into Results.” Our vision for education in Rhode Island is founded on three core pillars: World-Class Talent, Excellence in Learning, and Engaged Communities. I am incredibly proud of how we are turning that vision into reality, even as we deal with a very real public health threat.

Now more than ever we need your support to ensure we give the best education to students across our state. You can help by donating to the Fund for Rhode Island Public Education. Charitable contributions in any amount will be accepted and used to support initiatives aligned to our vision that benefit the education of our public school students.

You are amazing. Thank you!

Angélica Infante-Green
