ESEA flexibility has provided a voluntary opportunity for states to be released from certain requirements of NCLB. Arizona’s application was approved on July 19, 2012 for one year only. Arizona may request an extension by meeting two conditions. The first is to increase the weight of the graduation rate in A-F Letter Grade System and the second is to amend the definition of “academic progress” in the educator evaluation framework. These proposed changes will be discussed. Stakeholder feedback is desired.
