  6. Reauthorization Under Obama White House and Duncan Department of Education Race to the Top (RTT) • Began with ARRA • Virtually no Congressional direction

  7. Race to the Top (RTT) State: 3 Phases • Lengthy applications – hundreds of pages • Over 40 items for scoring

  8. RTT – State Priorities • Educational Reform • Stakeholder Support • Raising Achievement • Closing GAP • Common Standards • High Quality Assessments

  9. RTT – State Priorities (cont.) • Improved Data • Teacher and Principal Effectiveness - Achievement • Lowest Achieving Schools • Charters and Other Innovative Schools

  10. School Improvement Grants (SIG) 1003g • Existed as small program before ARRA (Since NCLB) • Statute is 1.25 pages long – • Directs use of funds for lowest achieving schools

  11. SIG 1003g • After ARRA… • Nearly 90 pages of “guidance” • Mandatory definitions for school eligibility • “Persistently lowest achieving schools” • Tiers 1-3

  12. SIG 1003g • 4 mandatory turnaround models • Turnaround • Restart • Closure • Transformation (Emphasis on High School graduation)

  13. SIG 1003g • Flexibility on Basic Title I Requirements • Schoolwide • Title I “Eligible”

  14. Faux Reauthorization: Waivers

  15. June 28, 2011 Congressional Research Service (CRS) Report on Secretary of Education’s Waiver Authority • ED has the authority to waive accountability provisions of Title I, Part A • It is unclear if Secretary can condition a waiver on other action(s) not required by law

  16. “ESEA Flexibility” September 23, 2011 • 10 provisions subject to waiver – all or nothing • 2013-2014 timeline • School improvement consequences

  17. “ESEA Flexibility” September 23, 2011 • LEA improvement identification • Rural LEAs • Schoolwide

  22. New Waiver Not Numbered • 11-12 assessment use 10-11 AMOs • For waiver intent

  23. RTT Local Competition Proposal Released • June 7, 2012 Letter to Secretary Duncan by National Governors Association, Council of Chief State School Officers, National Association of State Boards of Education • “States have the primary responsibility for educating their students…” • June 8, 2012 letter to Secretary Duncan National School Boards Association • “SEA’s have formal and extensive education expertise and missions, but they are not responsible for delivering educational services at the local level. Education is provided by local school districts…”

  24. ED Opens RTT to Districts, Groups of Districts • 116 page application • Minimum 2000 students (less than ½ US Districts) • Can band together • Nearly 900 intend to apply

  25. RTT-D • Executive Summary (22 pages) • FAQs (50+ pages)

  26. House • Chairman Kline’s small bills • Eliminating some federal education programs (passed Committee) • Promoting Charter expansion and replication (passed) • Only one of these bills with bipartisan support • Increasing funding flexibility (passed Committee) • Student Success Act, H.R. 3989 • Passed Committee on February 28, 2012 • Encouraging Innovation and Effective Teachers Act, H.R. 3990 • Passed Committee on February 28, 2012

  27. A Bill That Will Not Become Law But May Influence the Debate Chairman Kline Flexibility Bill (H.R. 2445) (passed committee July 13, 2011) “State and Local Funding Flexibility Act” • Creates essentially unlimited transferability • Unlikely to become law • However all reauthorizations add some flexibility. -NCLB • ED Flex • Transferability • State Flex, Local Flex

  28. Student Success Act (H.R. 3989) and Encouraging Innovation and Effective Teachers Act (H.R. 3990) • Eliminates AYP – Returns responsibility to States • Eliminates mandatory interventions • Retains SEA/LEA Report Cards • Allows Greater Transferability • Removes MOE • Eliminates 40% threshold for SW • Requires teacher and principal evaluations with student achievement as significant factor

  29. The Harkin Bill: Key Changes • No more AYP or 100% proficiency goal • State-designed assessments and accountability systems • No longer label schools passing or “in need of improvement” • Federally mandated focus on bottom 5% of schools • Codifies Race to the Top, Invest in Innovation

  30. Harkin Bill: Conflict and Quick Capitulation …er… Resolution with Teachers • 1st Draft conditioned Title II funding on implementation of teacher/principal evaluations • Unions and others came out strongly against this provision • Original draft modified to make evaluations suggested, but not required

  31. Status of IDEA Reauthorization • No action but overdue

  35. Perkins IV • Authorized through FY 2012 • Section 422 of GEPA • Contingent extensions of programs

  36. Projected Time Table? • Not likely to be reauthorized in 2013 • If reauthorized in 2014 transition year would be 2015

  37. Common Fears! • Folded into ESEA NO! • Eliminate federal support for secondary CTE NO! • Moved to DOL NO!

  38. Administration’s CTE Blueprint • Alignment • Collaboration • Accountability • Innovation See Overview of the Existing Perkins Act and Proposed Reforms

  39. CTE Community Opposes • Shift from formula to competition • Secondary/postsecondary consortia • Required match from business

  40. Status of AEFLA Reauthorization

  41. Workforce Investment Act of 1998 • Title II AEFLA • Authorized through 2003 • Augmented DOL role?

  42. AEFLA Is Noncontroversial • Delay due to WIA issues • EL Civics folded in • Contingent extension • Multiple year funding • Federal awards not bifurcated

  43. Status of WIA Reauthorization

  44. Authorized through 2003 • Last five Congresses tried but failed to reauthorize

  45. ETA/DOL has issued so many waivers that original law’s structure is not in place

  46. Most significant stumbling block… • …role of faith based providers

  47. Changes Agreeable to Both Parties: • Streamlined State and Local WIBs • More private industry/business control • Simpler and less onerous accountability and data • Authority for One-Stops to contract out services

  48. Changes Not Agreeable to Both Parties • Consolidation of Funding Streams • Eliminate Title III - Wagner-Peyser Act • Reduction of $ for In-School Youth • Role of Faith-Based Providers
