Submit a Waiver Request

Information and frequently asked questions (FAQs) about the system to submit waivers to the State Board of Education. Information includes FAQs, which data elements are required for submission, and sample Education Code strike-out language.

Please note: California Education Code (EC) Section 33054 used to allow Charter Schools to submit a General Waiver request on their own behalf. However, effective January 7, 2007, that Section of the EC was repealed. This means that a Charter School can no longer submit a General Waiver request on its own behalf. Charter Schools must have their chartering district submit the waiver request for the Charter School. A Charter School may continue to directly submit only Federal Waivers for the Carl Perkins Act and a Specific Waiver of Instruction Time Penalties on their behalf.
