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.
