The U. S. Department of Education allowed each State Education Agency (SEA) the opportunity to request flexibility on behalf of the State, Districts, and Schools to better focus on improving educational outcomes, closing achievement gaps, and increasing the quality of instruction. This opportunity will provide flexibility regarding specific requirements of the No Child Left Behind Act of 2001 (NCLB). In addition, this flexibility will build on and support the significant State and District reform efforts already underway.
The U.S. Department of Education staff has reviewed and approved Arkansas’s "ESEA Flexibility Accountability Addendum." The addendum provides comprehensive information regarding the Arkansas’s system of differentiated recognition, accountability and support. It outlines the process for determining status of schools and districts based on expected performance gains for student achievement and the secondary indicators. ESEA Flexibility was approved by the U.S. Department of Education in 2012 and was amended July 10, 2013.
