Office of Accountability

The Office of Accountability (OA) works to ensure equity and access to high quality educational programs for all students and promote continuous improvement by providing support, resources, and oversight for schools and Local Educational Agencies (LEAs) in New York State. OA is primarily responsible for:

  • Implementing New York’s Accountability System under New York State’s approved Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) plan by identifying schools and districts in need of additional support and providing technical assistance, oversight, and support to those schools; and
