No Child Left Behind
The No Child Left Behind Act of 2001 includes the legislation governing much of the federal funding available to school districts.
Under the No Child Left Behind Act of 2001, our district receives Title I monies to help all students achieve proficiency on the challenging state standards and assessments. Most of our funding is designated for the Basic Skills Improvement Program in the Carl T. Mitnick Schools.
The law also establishes the Parents' "Right to Know" provision, which allows parents to request information on the professional qualifications of their children's teachers. Please know that all of our teachers are considered "highly qualified". You may contact your child's principal if you have any further questions.
