The state of Iowa is currently working to get waivers from the federal No Child Left Behind Law. Pella School District Superintendent Greg Ebeling tells KNIA/KRLS News that the waivers will mean that schools statewide would be exempted from the national act. Ebeling notes that the state of Iowa is currently planning a revamped set of, what he hopes will be, more comprehensive and modern tests to measure student improvements.
