With a focus on new developments during 2013 and early 2014, this paper updates and supplements Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) Flexibility Requests-A Study of States' Requests for Waivers from Requirements of the No Child Left Behind Act of 2001, co-authored with Chris Domaleski of the Center for Assessment, and released in 2013 by the Council of Chief State School Officers (CCSSO). The original paper, commissioned by CCSSO's Accountability Systems and Reporting State Collaborative on Assessments and Student Standards (ASR SCASS), centered on waivers sought by states from various requirements of the No Child Left Behind Act of 2001 (NCLB). These waivers were an option that the U.S. Department of Education (ED) offered in September 2011 as reauthorization of ESEA showed no signs of progressing at that time
