ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Georgia's top education official was in Albany Tuesday night to get feedback on the state's education improvement plan. 

The Department of Education held an informational session on the new Every Student Succeeds Act on Tuesday at Dougherty High. 

It replaced the No Child Left Behind law, and requires states to develop plans to address standards, school accountability and special help for struggling schools and students.

"We get to determine the steps and the process by which we believe what we are doing is actually the best step for our children," said State School Superintendent Richard Woods.

If you couldn't make it to the forum, you can still give your feedback by here.
