The Alabama Department of Education is set to announce which schools and which school systems made adequate yearly progress under the No Child Left Behind Law.

The federal law seeks to have all students performing at the proficient level for their grades in math and reading by 2014.

This may be the last time that Alabama officials announce the scores.

They are asking the U.S. Department of Education for a waiver to replace adequate yearly progress with a new state-developed assessment program called Plan 2020.
