Common ISD and NCLB: One District's Induction to the No Child Left Behind Act of 2001
Conner, Raylene
Teacher Education and Practice, v17 n2 p182-198 Spr 2004
The No Child Left Behind (NCLB) Act of 2001 requires states to assess student achievement in reading and mathematics for students in grades three through eight and holds local school districts accountable for student assessment results. NCLB also stresses the importance of implementing educational programs that are research-based and insists that all teachers and instructional aides be highly qualified. To help readers gain perspective on the initiatives undertaken by school districts to meet the requirements of NCLB, this article discusses the programs that one school district has implemented to meet some of the mandates of NCLB. It concludes by recognizing the accomplishments and identifying the remaining challenges associated with complying with NCLB requirements.
