ND Requests No Child Left Behind Waiver | VideoKristin Clouston | 9/10/2012
States with waivers aren`t required to meet that standard but must adopt rigorous college and career readiness standards and reform principals and teacher evaluations.
"At least 30 to 40 people in total between two different committees worked for about a year on the proposal. The 130 page proposal we have here on the the desk. And from that we are saying we will commit ourselves to a program of improved teacher and principal effectiveness," said ND State School Superintendent Dr. Wayne Sanstead.
The U.S. Department of Education will issue an approval status this fall. If the the waiver is approved changes will become effective at the beginning of the 2013-2014 school year.
