Division Superintendents

 

FROM:

Jo Lynne DeMary

Superintendent of Public Instruction

 

SUBJECT:

Planning for Information Requirements of P.L. 107-110 No Child Left Behind Act of 2001

 

To assist school divisions in complying with the information and reporting requirements for adequate yearly progress, the report cards, and performance indicators of the No Child Left Behind Act, the Office of Information Technology will maintain a listing of data requirements on the Virginia Department of Educations website at www.pen.k12.va.us/VDOE/Publications/NCLB.

 

This listing will identify information that must be maintained for each student and teacher to meet the adequate yearly progress and report card data requirements. School divisions should use this list in planning any updates to their information systems or data collections to ensure that the necessary information is available when requested during the 2002-03 school year.

 

The Web page will be updated as requirements are developed by the Department of Education. When updates are made to the requirements document, the Department of Education will notify the student information system and other applicable contacts that have been identified through the School and Staff Administration Data Collection (Supts. Memo No. 40).

 

Questions or comments relating to the data requirements Web page should be directed to Bethann Canada, director of information technology, (mailto:bcanada@mail.vak12ed.edu) at (804) 225-2951 or Janet Christopher, data administration manager, (mailto:jchristopher@mail.vak12ed.edu) at (804) 786-1212.
