Nevada is among the first states in the nation to have its new education plan approved by the federal government, the state Department of Education announced Wednesday.
The state plan was a requirement under a new federal education law, the Every Student Succeeds Act. Nevada was one of 16 states to submit a plan to the U.S. Department of Education for review by an early deadline.
The state got feedback in mid-June and resubmitted the plan with changes later that month.
