The Kansas State Board of Education on Tuesday heard a proposal to eliminate for the next two years the need for schools to achieve adequate yearly progress under the federal No Child Left Behind Act in order to maintain state accreditation. Under the proposal, beginning in the 2014-15 school year, schools will need to meet multiple standards that include year-to-year growth in student achievement under the state's NCLB waiver. The board is expected to vote next month on the proposal.
