Dear President Kirst and Superintendent Torlakson:

I am writing in response to the California Department of Education's (CDE) request to waive certain statutory and regulatory requirements of Title I, Part A of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965, as amended. After reviewing the CDE’s request, I am pleased to grant the following waiver:

  • Approving schools and local educational agencies (LEAs) identified for improvement, corrective action, or restructuring as supplemental educational services (SES) providers. I am granting a two-year waiver of 34 C.F.R. § 200.47(b)(1)(iv)(A) and (B) to permit the CDE to approve a school or LEA identified for improvement, corrective action, or restructuring to serve as an SES provider for the 2014–15 and 2015–16 school years.

This waiver is granted on the condition that CDE will satisfy the condition detailed in the enclosure to this letter, including the requirement to report certain information about the use of the waiver to the U.S. Department of Education by September 30, 2016. Please be sure to review the enclosure carefully.

I appreciate the work you are doing to improve California’s lowest-performing schools and to provide a high-quality education for all its students. If you have any questions, the contact in my office is Matthew Stern: matthew.stern@ed.gov or 202-453-6451.

Sincerely,

/s/

Deborah S. Delisle
Assistant Secretary
