Title III AMAO Waiver Request
The Arkansas State Department of Education (ADE) is providing this public notice to solicit comments from local educational agencies (LEAs) and the public regarding a waiver request of the requirements in the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965 (ESEA), Section 3122(a)(3)(A)(iii) for the 2015-2016 school year. The Arkansas Department of Education requests this waiver to permit affected LEAs receiving Title III subgrants to continue the same Title III interventions in 2015–2016 that were implemented in 2014–2015. This waiver will apply to all LEAs that do not meet the annual measurable objectives (AMOs) component of AMAO 3 for the 2014−2015 school year due to the transition to new assessments in reading and mathematics that are aligned to college and career ready standards administered in the spring of 2015.
Specifically, Arkansas Department of Education will apply this waiver for 2014–2015 as follows:
Comments received will be forwarded to the U. S. Department of Education. ADE will accept comments between Wednesday, November 18, 2015, and Tuesday, November 24, 2015, via electronic submission.
Please submit your comments electronically to Miguel.firstname.lastname@example.org.
