The Elementary and Secondary Education Act is our country’s most important federal education law. In 2001, this law was reauthorized as the No Child Left Behind Act (NCLB). NCLB was designed to make changes in teaching and learning that will help increase academic achievement in our schools. The Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) was passed by the U.S. Congress late last year and signed into law on December 10, 2015. The ESSA replaces the No Child Left Behind Act (NCLB) and is the latest reauthorization of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA).
The law requires that all schools receiving Title I funds must inform parents of their right to ask schools about the qualifications of their child’s teachers and paraprofessionals. Our school receives Title I funding, and we are happy to share this information with you.
Here is more information about Title I in our school:
