PHOENIX -- The U.S. Department of Education says Arizona is a high-risk state for failing to meet various Elementary and Secondary Education Act flexibility requirements.

Federal officials notified state Superintendent of Public Instruction John Huppenthal by letter Tuesday.

In July, Arizona officials requested to extend approval of its ESEA flexibility request through the end of the 2013-14 school year.

Federal education officials say Arizona's revised guidelines for teacher and principal evaluation and support system don't meet flexibility requirements. They're asking Arizona education officials to submit another plan within 60 days.

Many states applied to be freed from the most strenuous requirements of the No Child Left Behind law that expired in 2007.

The Obama administration is allowing states that promise to improve how they prepare and evaluate students to get a waiver.
