According To Report, More Ala. Schools Meeting Goals
(2008-08-04)
(APR - Alabama Public Radio ) - The number of Alabama schools meeting annual performance benchmarks has climbed slightly in the last school year, with 83 percent reaching all 100 goals required by the No Child Left Behind Act.

State education officials also said fewer high-risk schools have been identified for improvement as they announced the state's Adequate Yearly Progress report on Monday.

Officials also learned that Alabama has been granted a school choice waiver from the U.S. Department of Education. The waiver allows six schools to offer after-school tutoring a year earlier than is allowed under No Child Left Behind. The tutoring would be offered istead of, or in addition to, letting parents transfer their children to better performing schools.
