ROCHESTER (AP) – State Education Commissioner Brenda Cassellius is going to Rochester to discuss the state’s request for the waiver to sections of the federal No Child Left Behind law in the first stop in a statewide tour.

She is scheduled to host a public meeting from 3 p.m. to 4 p.m. Thursday at the International Event Center in Rochester. The next stop is Dec. 14 in St. Cloud.

The central part of Minnesota’s waiver request is a move from a system that uses a single high-stakes test to measure school performance to a system that uses multiple measurements.

In addition to meetings in Rochester and St. Cloud, subsequent events in the metro area and other parts of outstate Minnesota are planned for January and February.
