Consolidated State Performance Report
The Consolidated State Performance Report is submitted annually to the U.S. Department of Education to report on multiple No Child Left Behind programs. One purpose of this report is to encourage the integration of State, local, and ESEA (Elementary and Secondary Education Act) programs in planning and service delivery.
Ed-flex allows the Secretary of Education to delegate to states with strong accountability safeguards the authority to waive certain federal requirements that may impede local efforts to carry out educational reform and improve education. It does not, however, allow states to waive requirements the federal government places on states.
