No Child Left behind Act of 2001 (NCLB)
The Federal No Child Left Behind Act of 2001 (NCLB) requires all states to measure each public school’s achievement and establish annual achievement targets. If a Title I school fails to make Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP) targets for two consecutive years, the school enters Federal School Improvement status. NCLB provides parents/guardians with options if their child’s current school has been identified for School Improvement.
District AYP Reports for schools
Does Plainfield CCSD 202 have Title I schools in Federal School Improvement status for the 2013-2014 school year?
Central Elementary, Creekside Elementary, Crystal Lawns Elementary, Elizabeth Eichelberger Elementary, Grand Prairie Elementary, Lakewood Falls Elementary, Thomas Jefferson Elementary, Indian Trails Middle School, John F Kennedy Middle School, and Timber Ridge Middle School are in Federal School Improvement status since they did not meet state standards in all subjects with all sub-groups of students for at least two consecutive years.
What are the schools doing in order to improve?
Each school will be using its School Improvement Plan, developed as required by Illinois law, to address their school improvement needs, including those identified under NCLB. The School Board, administration, and school staff are collaborating on proven methods to improve students’ performance, by evaluating and improving curriculum and instruction, increasing staff effectiveness, enhancing the learning environments, and increasing parental participation.
PUBLIC SCHOOL CHOICE
What is Public School Choice?
When a school does not make AYP for two consecutive years, the district must provide parents and guardians with options, including the option to request their child be transferred to another school until they complete the highest grade level at that school or their home school meets their AYP. This option is called Public School Choice.
When are parents notified?
According to the NCLB Act parents must be notified by the school district that their child is eligible for Public School Choice. Parents from each identified District 202 school were mailed a letter informing them of the public school choice option.
