In 2012 Oregon requested and received flexibility waivers from certain accountability provisions of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA), commonly referred to as No Child Left Behind (NCLB).
While the rules for implementing the recently re-authorized Elementary and Secondary Education Act is underway for implementation in the school year 2017-2018, Oregon’s ESEA waiver is still in effect.

Interim accountability system in place for the 2012-13 school year - Serves as a bridge between the former system and the new system which will be implemented for the 2013-14 school year. The interim system uses Oregon’s existing School Report Card model with some adjustments to rate all schools. It also incorporates a new growth calculation to identify high-poverty schools most in need of support and celebrate those high-poverty schools with standout performance.
