NDE SEEKING PUBLIC INPUT UNDER SECTION 8401 OF THE ELEMENTARY AND SECONDARY EDUCATION ACT OF 1965 (ESEA)

As Nebraska schools continue to endure the impacts of COVID-19 pandemic on education. the Nebraska Department of Education is requesting waivers that will afford additional fiscal flexibility for certain funds received under the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965 (ESEA).

These flexibilities would allow districts to carryover 19-20 and 20-21 federal funds until September 30, 2022 and additionally waive the 15% limit of Title I carryover. You can read more about U.S. Department of Education waiver process here.

The NDE’s draft waiver can be reviewed here. Public comment on the ESSA waiver is requested from July 19, 2021 through August 1, 2021. Comments may be submitted by email.
