With the federal Department of Education granting Idaho a waiver from its No Child Left Behind program, Tom Luna, superintendent of public instruction, says the state can now use its own measures to determine student progress and acknowledge schools that do well with educating its students, according to an Associated Press story in the Idaho Statesman.

No Child Left Behind, enacted in 2001, established proficiency levels for student achievement with rankings published annually as Adequate Yearly Progress, or AYP scores.

While Idaho was among the first states to request a waiver, it is among the last states to be granted one, according to the story.
