NCLB (ESEA) Waiver Accountability

2012-2013 Progress Targets Action Plan

New Jersey’s approved Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) Flexibility Request requires that the state implement an accountability system with differentiated recognitions, interventions and supports.  Section 2F of the Application charges the New Jersey Department of Education (NJDOE) with providing incentives and supports to schools that are not classified as a Priority or Focus School.  To appropriately identify the supports needed for schools that did not meet their 2012 Progress Targets, districts must develop a plan articulating how they will address the needs of student populations that did not meet their progress targets and other measures of student performance, such as graduation rate and Advanced Placement participation rates.
