NCLB (No Child Left Behind) School of Choice and SES (Supplemental Educational Services)

  •  

    When schools do not meet State targets for improving the achievement of all students, parents are provided educational options. The No Child Left Behind Act of 2001 (NCLB) provides funding for SES (Supplemental Educational Services) and School of Choice transfer to another school that is meeting AYP (Adequate Yearly Progress).

    While AYP is an important measure of student learning, it is important to remember that a district that does not make AYP should never be considered a “failing” district. Teaching and learning is an ongoing process that changes constantly to meet the unique needs of students and communities. One of the most important goals of NCLB is to identify areas in each district and school where improvement is needed.
