The Kansas Board of Education is receiving one more update about the state's proposal for seeking a waiver from some provisions of the federal No Child Left Behind education law.

The update is planned for Wednesday during the second day of the
board's two-day meeting in Topeka. Kansas officials plan to submit
the request by Feb. 28, the deadline for the second round of
requests.

Ten states were granted waivers last week from the first round of requests.

States excused from following the law no longer have to meet a
2014 deadline for ensuring that 100 percent of their students perform well on state tests. Instead, they had to show how they will prepare children for college and careers and set new targets for improving achievement among all students.
