SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- Utah education officials have missed the deadline to release federal No Child Left Behind report cards.

That's resulting in parents missing their chance to transfer their children to another school by the first day of classes. But state leaders say they don't have enough time to meet the deadline.

Students take state Criterion Referenced Tests in May. From there the state grades the tests, puts the data together and then sends it back to the districts to approve in a 30-day review period. Then the reports are released to the public.

State officials say that to have the reports ready before school starts, the state would have to be able to have the data turned around and to the districts by July 1.
