Note: Congress has reauthorized the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA), the statute formerly known as No Child Left Behind. The new statute, Every Student Succeeds Act, was signed into law by President Obama on December 10, 2015.
July 24, 2002, Secretary Rod Paige sent
a letter to state and local education leaders throughout the nation
about the Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP) provisions of the No
Child Left Behind Act.
"Ensuring that schools are held accountable for all students meeting state standards is central to this bipartisan law's goal of ensuring that no child is left behind," said Paige. "Under this historic law, schools must measure and report on overall student performance and the achievement of various groups of students. With this level of diagnosis and the valuable information state and local leaders, parents and others will soon have, we can all work together to ensure that all students succeed and that the achievement gap is closed, once and for all."
& Districts Have More Flexibility
new definition of AYP will help states and districts accurately identify
which schools need improvement and where they should focus their resources
beginning in the 2003-04 school year.

are not proficient readers - they do not have the reading skills they
need in life. NCLB Act requires schools to provide teachers with up-to-date
