New Jersey's No Child Left Behind Waiver Extended

New Jersey has been granted a one-year extension of its waiver freeing it from some requirements of the No Child Left Behind law, federal officials announced Friday.

The extension, one of more than two dozen granted to states by the Obama administration in recent months, runs through the end of the 2014-2015 school year. Without the waiver, New Jersey schools could have been subject to sanctions unless every student in the state scored proficiently on statewide tests.

Federal education officials said New Jersey has put several changes into place that go beyond the law's requirements. That includes establishing a model curriculum divided into smaller learning units that are aligned to college- and career-readiness standards.
