U.S. Department of Education grants Pennsylvania waiver from No Child Left Behind law’s AYP requirement
August 20, 2013
The measure used for public school performance throughout Pennsylvania for more than a decade — adequate yearly progress, or AYP — is being replaced by a new accountability system.
The U.S. Department of Education and Gov. Tom Corbett announced Tuesday that the federal government has granted the state a waiver to the federal No Child Left Behind Act, which was enacted in January 2001.
