The Oklahoma State Department of Education is in the process of amending Oklahoma’s ESEA flexibility waiver. The documents listed here highlight the contents of this amendment. Some of the major changes include the definition of Full Academic Year (FAY) status and the new Annual Measurable Objectives (AMO) calculations. This replaces the NCLB Accountability Workbook that was in place before Oklahoma’s request for ESEA Flexibility.
Oklahoma submitted a request to the U.S. Department of Education for waivers of certain ESEA requirements. The original approved waiver will allow the State to implement a series of reforms that will lead to college, career, and citizen readiness of all students. The reforms are explained in the waiver request below, which was developed with input from educators and the public.
