You can be positive and go with this statement.
"We continue to work with Washington officials on their request for flexibility," said Dorie Nolt, press secretary for U.S. Education Secretary Arne Duncan.
Or, you can believe it is only a matter of time until it is pulled as Superintendent Dorn believes.
But Dorn said on Friday his office has been in an ongoing conversation with Duncan's office throughout the legislative session.
"I'd surely like to talk to him to see if there's anything we can do," Dorn said, adding, however, "I don't think we'll get a waiver."
Dorn said he didn't know if some part of the waiver was still salvageable.
"I don't know how much flexibility they're talking about. We'll definitely continue to talk," he said.
