The West Virginia Board of Education is seeking public comment for a planned replacement of the No Child Left Behind act.

The new plan-the Every Student Succeeds Act-was signed into law by President Barack Obama in December, 2015.

It's a shift from broad federal oversight to more flexibility for education at the state and local level, but it also requires states to develop their own plans addressing standards, accountability and support for struggling schools.

The state's plan will be available for review until August 30. We have a link to the review tab from the education department's website on the "Hot Button".
