State Makes Progress on No Child Left Behind Waiver

Our state is apparently making progress in terms of getting out from under the No Child Left Behind Act.
 
The State Board of Education is a step closer to gaining full approval of its No Child Left Behind flexibility request after revisions were recently made to the state's educator evaluation system in response to feedback from federal reviewers. 
 
Back in September of 2012, the BOE submitted the waiver out of hopes that they'd get permission from the U.S. Department of Education to free our public schools from certain federal rules and deadlines in order to focus more in improving learning and instruction. 
 
If the request is approved, the state would have more flexibility in using its own accountability system to more effectively identify struggling schools and to efficiently direct resources to struggling schools. We'll let you know once there's another update on the approval process.
