Oklahoma’s ESEA Flexibility Request

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.
