Candace Cortiella posted an update in the group ESSA-The Every Student Succeeds Act (2015 reauthorization of ESEA) – Parent Centers Taking Action 3 years, 9 months ago
ED has acted on 4 state requests for a waiver of ESSA’s 1% cap on the number of students who can be assessed via a state’s alternate assessments.
KY and MA rec’d approval of their requests.
IN received approval for math and ELA but was denied a waiver for science.
PA’s request was denied due to the state’s failure to assess at least 95% of students with disabilities which is a requirement to obtain a waiver.
ED’s responses to all state assessment waiver requests are posted at https://www2.ed.gov/admins/lead/account/stateplan17/waivers/index.html
