Federal Accountability

The Elementary and Secondary Education Act is the primary federal law affecting K-12 education. The main goal of ESEA is to help all students in the state to reach proficiency in English language arts/reading and mathematics and is built on four pillars:

  1. Expanded local control and flexibility
  2. Doing what works based on scientific research
  3. Accountability for results
  4. More options for parents

In 2012, the U.S. Department of Education approved Colorado’s NCLB Waiver request of certain accountability provisions.
