Arizona has received a conditional waiver from the federal Department of Education’s No Child Left Behind law.

According to a letter from U.S. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan, the state’s application — which presented its new teacher evaluation and school report cards — was accepted for the 2012-2013 school year. The state must make changes to the teacher evaluation program and base 20 percent of a school’s report card on high school graduation rates in order for the waiver to stay in place for the 2013-2014 school year.

More than 30 states have received a waiver — which gives the state some flexibility. All states with a waiver will have to reapply for it to stay in place for the 2014-15 school year. More information on NCLB and the waiver can be found at www.ed.gov.
