No Child Left Behind Waivers

The Department of Education granted waivers from key provisions of No Child Left Behind (NCLB) to 8 states: Connecticut, Delaware, Louisiana, Maryland, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, and Rhode Island, bringing the total number of states to receive waivers to 19, with an additional 18 applications still under review.  Information about the waivers is available on the Department website.

States that receive flexibility under NCLB agree to develop state-level plans to prepare all students for college and careers, focus aid on the neediest students, and support effective teaching and leadership. All of these goals include students with disabilities.
