The "No Child Left Behind Act" (NCLB) was an amendment, by Congress in 2002, to the "Elementary and Secondary Education Act" (ESEA) that was signed into law in 1965.  ESEA emphasizes equal access to education and establishes high standards and accountability.  The law authorizes federally funded education programs that are administered by the states.

NCLB emphasizes: increased accountability; expanded options for parents; greater flexibility in the use of federal dollars; and an emphasis on teaching methods that have been proven to work.

The law also requires that teachers and para educators meet certain federal and state qualification standards. If you would like information about the qualifications of our staff, contact the human resources department at (360) 629-1200.
