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 help you.
  • The ROE provides a six county network of schools (RESPRO) also involved in this work.
  • The ROE stays involved with you throughout the school improvement process
  • 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.
