Created by the National Association of State Boards of Education and supported by the U.S. Department of Education, “The No Child Left Behind Act: What States Need to Know” is a 12-page online guide for educators about how best to coordinate existing statewide reforms with the sweeping federal requirements brought on by the legislation. The document delves into three main provisions of the law: the call for greater accountability with respect to student achievement, new rules for teacher quality, and expanded flexibility options for states regarding the dissemination of federal funds. This fully online resource breaks down each requirement of the legislation, provision by provision, to help educators and other stakeholders understand their roles and responsibilities within the law. In reading the document, educators will come to understand what options are available to their respective schools and how much time has been allotted to meet the guidelines imposed. The document concludes with eight important questions states should consider as they continue to forge ahead under NCLB.
