The No Child Left Behind Act of 2001 (NCLB) reauthorized the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) -- the main federal law affecting education from kindergarten through high school. NCLB is built on four principles: accountability for results, more choices for parents, greater local control and flexibility, and an emphasis on doing what works based on scientific research.

Title 1 is a component of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA).
Title 1 is designed to support local efforts to improve student achievement, assist students in meeting challenging academic standards, improve teaching and learning and include strategies to support parental involvement.
Currently, McCleary elementary school is our only Title 1 school.
The purpose of Title III of the No Child Left Behind Act of 2001 (NCLB) is to help ensure that children who are limited English proficient (LEP), including immigrant children and youth, attain English language proficiency, develop high levels of academic achievement in English, and meet the same challenging state academic content and student academic achievement as all children are expected to meet. [NCLB, Section 3102(1)]
