Federal Accountability Programs
The No Child Left Behind Act of 2001 was signed into federal law on January 8, 2002. The guiding principles of NCLB are focused on four primary areas:
- Improving Accountability for student performance,
- Focusing on what works through research,
- Reducing bureaucracy and improving flexibility, and
- Empowering parents to involved in the education of their children.
In an effort to facilitate change in the nation's schools, the NCLB statute requires states to be accountable for improving student performance by having:
- State Standards
- A statewide Assessment System
- A statewide Accountability System which includes Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP), and
- School Improvement for Title I campuses that do not meet the AYP.
