The School District 2 board decided in its regular meeting Monday night to postpone its discussion of how students performed under No Child Left Behind last year.

Earlier in the evening, the board had met in a special meeting where they voted to terminate Superintendent Keith Beeman. That meeting ran two hours, pushing back the start of the regular meeting.

With the late start, trustees decided they'd wait until possibly next month to talk about student test scores.

President Barack Obama announced Friday that states would be able to opt out of requirements tied to the beleaguered federal program.

Officials from the Montana Office of Public Instruction sat through web-broadcast seminars Monday morning in regards to Obama's announcement.

OPI plans to address the issue Tuesday.
