HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) - Connecticut’s Department of Education is seeking public opinion on the state’s educational priorities.

The agency has launched an online survey, available in both English and Spanish.

It asks participants about the most important factors in assuring student achievement, ways to keep at-risk students engaged in school, ideas to transform low-performing schools, strategies to help students who need to learn English as a second language and other issues.

Feedback from the survey will be used to help drive the state’s educational goals. The information will also be used in developing Connecticut’s plan to comply with a new federal education law, the Every Student Succeeds Act, which attempts to ensure all students have equal access to high-quality education.

The survey can be found on the state Department of Education’s website.
