Virginia Schools Earn Flexibility Extension

The U.S. Department of Education (USED) today approved a four-year extension of Virginia’s Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) flexibility waiver.

Under the flexibility waiver, state interventions are focused on Title I schools struggling to meet state standards in reading and mathematics.

In approving the extension, USED agreed to a change in how the Virginia Department of Education (VDOE) measures and reports student growth. Beginning in 2015-2016, VDOE will move from a relative growth measure to a measure that compares a student’s performance to his or her own past level of achievement.
