    8. 8. WPMS IS NO LONGER IN NCLB SANCTIONS (OR) CORRECTIVE THE STATE OF NORTH CAROLINA WAS GRANTED ESEA FLEXILBILITY WAIVER BY THE U.S. DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION http://www.ed.gov/esea/flexibility In May of 2012, the North Carolina Department of Public Instruction received notice that the US Department of Education approved a waiver to provide more flexibility to the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA), also referred to as No Child Left Behind (NCLB). This waiver provides flexibility to many educational areas, and this notice speaks specifically to the change in qualifications for School Improvement. Schools will not be identified for improvement in the same manner resulting in no school sanctions requiring School Choice with transportation or Supplemental Educational Services.
    9. 9. CONTINUED Pender County Schools will no longer offer School Choice transportation, but will honor transfers to those students currently enrolled in a choice school during the 2011-2012. If families would like to remain at their school, they must provide their own transportation. Children enrolled this year may remain at their school until the final grade span of the school.

WHAT WILL HAPPEN TO THE FUNDS USED FOR SCHOOL CHOICE AND SES? Because of the previously mentioned NCLB waiver, the requirement for School Choice and SES (Supplemental Educational Services) are no longer mandatory as the school is no longer in Corrective Action. The funds used for School Choice and SES have been reallocated  50% is being reserved for a possible federal cut in January  50% has been reallocated to the schools to support instruction and professional development
