- USED ESEA Flexibility Renewal Approval Letter, August 13, 2015
- The US Department of Education’s July 2012 approval of Michigan’s Flexibility Waiver of the Requirements of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) resulted in Supplemental Educational Services (SES) tutoring services no longer being required in Michigan’s public schools, effective starting in the 2012-2013 school year.
Public School Choice, under Michigan’s amended Flexibility Waiver of ESEA, is no longer required for the 2013-2014 school year.
