With the "No Child Left Behind Act of 2001" ("NCLB"), signed into law on January 8, 2002, schools nationwide have been challenged to improve student achievement. Several middle and junior high schools in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania were identified as being in need of Corrective Action in 2006 based upon data from the Pennsylvania System of School Assessment (PSSA). These schools were required by the Pennsylvania Department of Education to create Corrective Action plans using the "Getting Results! Framework for School Improvement." Coding the Corrective Action Plans, the researcher analyzed how middle and junior high schools addressed the NCLB policy requirement for change at the school level. The result of this study was the identification of five key areas that schools should address when looking for improvement: communication, instructional practices, curricular cohesion, remediation and safety nets, and school climate.
