Under Waiver, Most North Dakota Schools No Longer “Failing.”

The Bismarck (ND) Tribune (9/21) reports that last year, most North Dakota schools were labeled “failing” under NCLB, but notes that “most received welcome news late Friday that they met Adequate Yearly Progress” under the terms of the state’s NCLB waiver, which Superintendent Kirsten Baesler said “allowed North Dakota to throw out its students’ standardized test scores in determining whether schools and school districts met AYP.” The article describes this year’s metrics for AYP, and notes that a handful of districts still failed to make AYP. The AP (9/21) also covers this story, following on the Tribune’s report.
