Public Notices & Waiver Requests to the U.S. Department of Education

We are required by federal law to post a public notice for every waiver request we make of the U.S. Department of Education. We make these requests as a way to create flexibility within specific requirements of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act. Our sole intent is to improve learning for all students and support high quality instruction. In exchange for flexibility, we set a high bar for accountability and positive, sustainable educational outcomes.
