Indiana: Feds delayed No Child Left Behind report

Indianapolis — Indiana Department of Education officials say federal monitors delayed releasing a report expressing concerns over the state's efforts to maintain its No Child Left Behind waiver.

Assistant Superintendent Danielle Shockey said Indiana originally was promised the report 45 days after U.S. Department of Education monitors flew to the state last August. However, the report was not delivered to the state until late last month.

Federal officials placed Indiana on a "conditional" status last month and gave state officials 60 days to submit an amended waiver. They cited concerns in monitoring low-performing schools and teacher evaluations, along with the decision to exit national Common Core standards.

Members of the State Board of Education grilled education officials about the federal waiver during a tense and lengthy meeting Tuesday.
