WV Department of Education Releases No Child Left Behind Report Cards

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.
