ESEA Flexibility Waivers Status: 2012-13
Description: Status of state application for an ESEA Flexibility Waivers.
Academic Year: 2012-13
Grade: N/A
Note: States have been given the opportunity to request flexibility on behalf of their State, your LEAs, and your schools, in order to better focus on improving student learning and increasing the quality of instruction. The voluntary opportunity is intended provide educators and State and local leaders with flexibility regarding specific requirements of NCLB in exchange for rigorous and comprehensive State-developed plans designed to improve educational outcomes for all students, close achievement gaps, increase equity, and improve the quality of instruction. This flexibility is intended to build on and support the significant State and local reform efforts already under way in critical areas such as transitioning to college- and career-ready standards and assessments; developing systems of differentiated recognition, accountability, and support; and evaluating and supporting teacher and principal effectiveness.
