RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - Virginia education officials are beginning work on implementing the state's two-year waiver from the federal No Child Left Behind school accountability requirements.

 

In exchange for the waiver, Virginia must develop accountability plans that set new targets for raising student achievement, advancing teacher effectiveness and improving the performance of low-performing schools. New targets also must be set for preparing students for careers and college.

 

Virginia Department of Education spokesman Charles Pyle says the biggest initial project is developing ways to track student progress.

 

The objectives are being developed to measure "challenging but attainable goals" to improve student achievement.
