Federal No Child Left Behind ACT of 2001 (NCLB)
The No Child Left Behind Act of 2001 represents a sweeping overhaul of federal efforts to support elementary and secondary education in the United States.
NCLB guidelines will align the Act's main principals with specific performance goals expected of all districts including alternative programs in non-traditional settings similar to SPAS. These goals, as set through California State Board of Education and guided by NCLB principles, include:
- All students will reach high standards, at a minimum, attaining proficiency or better in reading and mathematics by 2013-2014.
- All limited English-proficient students will become proficient in English and reach high academic standards, at a minimum, attaining proficiency or better in reading/language arts and mathematics.
- All students will be taught by highly qualified teachers.
In California, schools are measured by an accountability system mandated by NCLB that requires each state to ensure that all schools and districts make Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP).
For more information on Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP) please visit the Web site of the California Department of Education.
