Ed-Flex Waiver

By taking advantage of Ed-Flex, local education agencies (LEAs) can design and implement programs in ways that best meet the needs of their students and communities.

Pennsylvania has been approved as an Ed-Flex State under the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA). This authority is effective through the 2018-19 school year.
