BISMARCK -- Hundreds of schools in North Dakota are not meeting requirements set by federal law, according to the state Department of Public Instruction.

Of the 455 public schools in the state, only 77 met Adequate Yearly Progress requirements, according to a report released by the department. That’s down by more than 100 schools from last year, when 189 schools met AYP goals.

The No Child Left Behind Act requires all states to have one accountability system for public schools and districts. This year schools are supposed to be 100 percent proficient, a goal state Superintendent Kirsten Baesler calls lofty.

“The reauthorization of NCLB is overdue and should have been revised in 2008, but has been stalled in Congress,” Baesler said in the release.
