Flexibility Waiver

Waiver of Title IV, Part A Content Area Minimum Percentage Spending Requirements – ESSA Section 4106(e)(2)(C), (D) and (E) under sections 4107, 4108, 4109

The measurable goal is to increase the number of students who are college and career ready. The expected result is that students will leave Pickens High School prepared for college or work and that the college and career readiness indicator will increase from 71.5% to 74.5%. 

The college and career coach was hired during the FY19 school year. Over the past two years, the college and career readiness indicator has moved from 66.9% to 71.5% indicating the value of this initiative. During the FY22 school year, we would like to continue this initiative to reach the anticipated goal.

Due to flexibility with transferring funds and consolidation of funds (Title I State and Local), other fund sources are being used for safe and healthy schools and technology integration. We will be transferring funds from Title II-A to Title I-A and Title IV-A.

This aligns with the following:

Overarching Need 3: Ensuring readiness for college and career for all students is the third identified overarching need.

Goal 3: To increase the percent of students who are college and career ready from 71.5% to 74.5%.
