Subject: Seeking Comment From YOU


Dear WVDE Staff, 


Will you please send the message below to all of your personal education
listservs. If you are able to help, please include me on the message so I
have a list of all that received the correspondence. Thanks. 







Dear Education Colleague, 


The West Virginia Board of Education is requesting public comment on a
proposal seeking relief from certain provisions of the Elementary and
Secondary Education Act (ESEA), also known as the No Child Left Behind Act.


The flexibility request requires the West Virginia Department of Education
to develop a rigorous and comprehensive plan designed to improve educational
outcomes for all students, close achievement gaps, increase equity and
improve the quality of instruction. Work on the request is being guided by
the Accountability and Accreditation Stakeholder Committee, which includes
representatives of the West Virginia Board of Education, county school
superintendents, school principals, parents, teachers, teacher organizations
and others. 


Educators, parents and community members are encouraged to review and
provide comment on the proposed flexibility request. The request can be
viewed on the West Virginia Department of Education website at


The proposal will remain on public comment until Aug. 31. If approved by the
U.S. Department of Education, the waiver would free West Virginia public
schools from certain federal rules and deadlines to focus on improving
learning and instruction.
