Barresi said the State Department of Education has not been given any assurance from the USDE that schools will be granted flexibility for this school year. The submission was reportedly in an effort to allow consideration to be made as soon as possible.

In August, the USDE refused to grant Oklahoma's request for an extension of the flexibility waiver. It said the state was unable to demonstrate that state academic standards adequately prepared students for college and a career.
