The California Office to Reform Education (CORE), a consortium of seven school districts that includes the Long Beach Unified School District, has submitted two proposed amendments to a waiver that the U.S. Department of Education first approved in August 2013. The waiver allows the school district to implement a comprehensive School Quality Improvement System to prepare all students for college and careers while ensuring greater accountability to the public.
In May of 2013, the CORE districts – Long Beach, Fresno, Los Angeles, Oakland, San Francisco, Sanger and Santa Ana – submitted a joint request to extend the waiver into the 2014-15 school year and beyond. Because the waiver is an evolving concept for improving and supporting schools, CORE invites public comment on the two proposed amendments.
