The U.S. Department of Education will hold meetings this month to seek reaction from the public on proposed rules that would change the way the No Child Left Behind Act is implemented.

The meetings are scheduled for May 14 in Boston; May 15 in Dunwoody, Ga., north of Atlanta; May 19 in Kansas City, Mo.; and May 22 in Seattle. Details are available in the April 29 Federal Register.

The rules, which the department formally proposed on April 23, would set a uniform method of calculating graduation rates; require districts to increase their outreach to students eligible for tutoring and school choice under the NCLB law; and make several other administrative changes.
