Dover – The Delaware Department of Education (DDOE) invites the public to make comments on the latest draft of its request for a 3-year extension of its current Flexibility Waiver from certain provisions of the federal Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA). The draft can be found on line at http://www.doe.k12.de.us/Page/1942.
The DDOE applied for ESEA Flexibility from the U.S. Department of Education (USDOE) in February 2012. The DDOE request was approved on May 29, 2012. The DDOE later applied for a one-year extension that was granted on July 31, 2014.
Last November, the USDOE gave states the opportunity to apply for a three-year extension of their ESEA Flexibility agreements.
Please submit comments at DOEAccountability@doe.k12.de.us by Tuesday, March 17, 2015. DDOE’s ESEA Flexibility Waiver submission will be before the State Board of Education for action on Thursday, March 19, 2015. The application is required to be submitted to USDOE by March 31, 2015.
