Local practitioners and state policymakers are focused on implementing the No Child Left Behind Act (NCLB) (P.L. 107-110), which in 2001 reauthorized the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA). At the same time, federal policymakers are working to help educators meet both the letter and the spirit of the law: to ensure that no child, regardless of background, is left behind by the nation's education system. This document reports the key findings from the first year of the 3-year Evaluation of Title I Accountability Systems and School Improvement Efforts (TASSIE), and the final year in which ESEA as it existed prior to NCLB, was still in effect. The data reported here will serve as a baseline against which to track the implementation of NCLB. Throughout, the document contrasts IASA (the Improving America?s Schools Act (IASA) of 1994) with NCLB and comments on the implications of the findings for the implementation of NCLB. Evaluation methods included surveys of districts and Title I schools identified as in need of improvement in those districts, as well as case studies of a set of identified Title I schools in districts in five states. (Contains 13 exhibits and 10 tables.) [Document produced by the Policy and Program Studies Service.]
