This report is based on an analysis of information contained in the twelve EFD state reports submitted to the U.S. Department of Education in the spring of 2000. These reports summarize waiver activity in the states between January 1, 1999, and December 31, 1999, including the number and type of federal waivers granted to school districts or schools and the disposition of waiver requests. As required by the Goals 2000 legislation, the reports also include achievement data and other information for waivers that have been in place in districts and schools for two or more years. In addition, this analysis includes information from the EFD states' original applications for the Ed-Flex authority and information gathered through several telephone calls to SEA officials in the EFD states.
