No Child Left Behind Highlighted During Regional Workshops
Posted: March 21, 2003
CHARLESTON, W. Va. -The West Virginia Department of Education (WVDE) is spreading the word about the latest developments regarding the federal No Child Left Behind (NCLB) Act.
The WVDE has scheduled another series of regional workshops to review what changes school systems can expect during the 2003 2004 school year. WVDE teams are meeting with superintendents, principals and other school administrators.
We want students, parents, teachers and school administrators to be prepared for all the changes resulting from NCLB, said State Schools Superintendent David Stewart. It is vital that our frontline people have a good understanding of what the federal legislation means to individual schools. This set of workshops is the third time my staff has traveled across the state in our effort to get out the latest NCLB information.
Two workshop sessions are scheduled per day at each location. The schedule is as follows:
March 27, 2003 9am 12 pm John XXIII Pastoral Center April 1, 2003 9am- 12pm Radisson Hotel
March 27, 2003
9am 12 pm
John XXIII Pastoral Center

In 2002, President George Bush signed into law the NCLB Act of 2001. The Act is the most sweeping reform of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act. NCLB focuses on providing education for all students in order to close the achievement gap and ensure that no child is left behind.
