WV Department of Education Hits the Road to Highlight the No Child Left Behind Act

December 03, 2002

CHARLESTON, W.VA. – The West Virginia Department of Education is traveling across the state to update superintendents, principals and other school administrators on the federal No Child Left Behind (NCLB) Act.  

NCLB focuses on providing education for all students in order to close the achievement gap and ensure that no child is left behind.  

“We want schools to think of the NCLB Act as an opportunity to highlight student achievement,” said State Schools Superintendent David Stewart. “That is why it is so important that our frontline people have a good understanding of what the federal legislation means to individual schools.”  

Two WVDE teams will focus on NCLB requirements during the 2002- 2003 transition year. Scheduled workshops are as follows:  

December 3, 2002 9am – 12pm 1pm – 4pm Team A RESA I Office 400 Neville Street Beckley, WV 25801  

Team B Radisson Hotel 1001 Third Avenue Huntington, WV 22701
