Posted: December 11, 2002
CHARLESTON, W.VA. – The West Virginia Department of Education (WVDE) today released to the public the 2001 – 2002 No Child Left Behind- West Virginia Report Cards. Report cards can be viewed by logging onto http://wveis.k12.wv.us/nclb/ As part of the No Child Left Behind Act, states must furnish annual report cards showing a range of information. The report cards provide: * educators and the public with an extensive view of the statewide assessment results by specific groups of children. * information about graduation rate for secondary schools and attendance rate for elementary and middle schools. * numbers of teachers in schools. * the name of any school that is in need of improvement based on the Office of Education Performance Audits assessment evaluation. County school superintendents and principals were given their 2001 – 2002 NCLB-West Virginia Report Cards earlier this month as part a series of No Child Left Behind workshops presented by the WVDE. The NCLB Act, passed in January 2002, requires states to set up a new system for evaluating students, teachers and schools. The law also sets a series of goals for improving student achievement.
