Wyoming Delays No Child Left Behind Waiver Request

CASPER, Wyo. (AP) — Wyoming is pushing back by a year its request for a waiver from federal education requirements.

Under the federal No Child Left Behind Act, schools are required to meet rising benchmarks toward all students testing proficient in math and language by 2014. Schools that fail to reach the benchmarks face consequences set by the federal government.

Wyoming is making complicated education reform efforts that would satisfy a waiver from the federal requirements but the state isn’t ready to meet the waiver’s timeline.

David Holbrook of the state Education Department says that trying to meet the federal waiver timeline this year could compromise the quality of Wyoming education reform.
Holbrook says Wyoming will still seek a waiver for the 2014-15 school year.
