No Child Left Behind
No Child Left Behind (NCLB) is the latest federal legislation
that enacts the theories of standards-based education reform,
which is based on the belief that setting high standards and
establishing measurable goals can improve individual outcomes in
education. No Child Left Behind requires all public schools to
administer a state-wide standardized test annually to all
students. Schools must make Adequate Yearly Progress in test
scores (e.g. each year, its fifth graders must do better on
standardized tests than the previous years).
The ROE offers services to schools failing to make Adequate
Yearly Progress. Here’s how the ROE can help you, your school,
your students, parents and faculty:
- The ROE provides trained educators, professional
development specialists, technical assistance, and funds to
- The ROE provides a six county network of schools (RESPRO)
also involved in this work.
- The ROE stays involved with you throughout the school
- The six areas of SIP work include: standards aligned
curriculum; research based teaching strategies; frequent
review of data; community partnership; leadership actions to
create and maintain instruction and assessment systems
within the context of a learning community; and intervention
programs to work with targeted student populations.
