SD Gets Year Extension On No Child Left Behind

SD Gets Year Extension On No Child Left Behind
SIOUX FALLS, SD -

The U.S. Education Department has granted a one-year extension to South Dakota and five other states to give them more time to meet provisions of No Child Left Behind.

Congress passed the act in 2002 and it's been due for reauthorization since 2007. President Barack Obama said in 2011 his administration would grant waivers from parts of the law to states that set student expectations, create accountability for underperforming schools and come up with teacher and principal evaluations that factor in student growth.

Mary Stadick Smith with the state Education Department says that in addition to test scores, schools are now judged on attendance and graduation rates and college entry scores. She says in the coming years, academic improvement will also be measured.
