MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Wisconsin has submitted a federally required school improvement plan to President Donald Trump's administration over objections from Gov. Scott Walker and conservative groups.
Trump's Education Secretary Betsy DeVos has four months to review the plan and either approve or reject it.
All 50 states must submit accountability plans under the Every Student Succeeds Act in order to continue receiving federal education funding. Wisconsin gets more than $500 million per year in such funding.
Some states submitted their plans earlier this year, but Monday was the final deadline.
Walker last week said the plan written by the state Department of Public Instruction overseen by state Superintendent Tony Evers wasn't innovative enough. Evers is running as a Democrat for governor next year.
The state's final version largely mirrors an April draft.
