Kansas Education Officials Plan to Ask for Waiver Extension


Kansas education officials plan to ask for an extension of their waiver from the No Child Left Behind Law.

The U.S. Department of Education put Kansas on notice that it's at high risk of losing its waiver because Kansas had not taken enough steps to use student growth data as part of teacher evaluations. The waivers give states more flexibility in meeting some of the provisions of No Child Left Behind.

State education officials say they are no closer to installing a new teacher evaluation system than they were last summer.

Kansas must have a plan with final guidelines for teacher evaluations by may first to continue its waiver.
