LAS VEGAS (KSNV MyNews3) -- Schools in Nevada are once again exempt from the requirements of the federal No Child Left Behind act. According to the state superintendent, the waiver for the 2014-2015 school year will allow Nevada to continue implementing standards-based teaching and performance assessments for students and educators.
The department of education is allowing the exemption because of Nevada's recent progress. The act would have required 100 percent of students to pass state tests in the 2013-2014 school year. But state officials say few, if any, Nevada schools could meet that expectation.
