NCLB Reprieve

The U.S. Department of Education has approved a one-year target freeze for AYP requirements under NCLB.  From The Gazette, it appears that the proficiency rate required will remain at 80% instead of rising to 87% this year.

Presumably this means there will be no relief from SINA requirements for schools already identified, but perhaps fewer schools will be added to the SINA list this year.
