USDE Resources on ESEA Flex Waivers

The US DOE has developed a set of materials that provide an overview of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) flexibility process, also known as ESEA waivers, by which 34 states (including NJ) and DC have applied for and received flexibility on certain provisions of ESEA.  These materials, a brochure and five companion fact sheets, try to explain the rationale and intent of ESEA flexibility, as well as address key components and highlight plan elements for a number of states approved for flexibility. The brochure and fact sheets can be found on the Department's updated ESEA flexibility web page: . Individual links to the documents are below:

This is important information for parents to know, especially when children attend schools receiving Title I funding and or schools that may be among the lowest performing in the state.
