Nine school districts in California, including Los Angeles, are seeking a waiver from portions of No Child Left Behind and are pledging to develop their own ways for evaluating the success of schools. The request -- filed jointly by the districts belonging to the California Office to Reform Education -- calls for the evaluation of schools based on standardized test scores, along with attendance, suspensions and graduation data, using district-developed formulas.
