Kansas Receives No Child Left Behind Waiver

KSCB News - July 19, 2012 1:12 pm

Kansas has won approval for a waiver from No Child Left Behind.

The state submitted its application in February, seeking to use a different method to measure student achievement.

Last year the Obama administration said it would give states waivers from some of the NCLB provisions, if they proved they could still reach a number of education reforms.

The waiver means Kansas will focus on making sure schools achieve a certain level of improvement on at least one of several annual measurable objectives established by the state.
