The following information is found on the Connecticut State Department of Education website:

“In February 2012, the Connecticut State Department of Education participated in a federal application process for flexibility from certain requirements of Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA). On August 6, 2015 the United States Department of Education approved a three year renewal for Connecticut.  In May the United States Department of Education approved Connecticut’s flexibility request (or waiver), allowing the State to establish a new accountability system to assess school performance. The new performance measurement system improves the State’s ability to provide more accurate and appropriate interventions, support and recognition to local schools.”
