No Child Left Behind Consolidated Application State Accountability Workbook

 

On January 28, 2003, the Board of Education approved the Consolidated Application State Accountability Workbook, which details Virginias processes and timelines for implementing the accountability requirements of the No Child Left Behind Act of 2001. By approving the workbook, the Board established various definitions and procedures and starting points, intermediate goals and annual measurable objectives against which student performance will be measured beginning with data from the current school year.

 

Implementation of the policies and procedures detailed in the workbook is contingent upon approval from the U.S. Education Department. The workbook is posted in .pdf format at:

http://www.pen.k12.va.us/VDOE/nclb/ConsolApplWkbk.pdf. I encourage you to share this information with your staff and to make yourself familiar with its contents.

 

Questions about the content of the workbook may be directed to George Irby, director of compensatory programs at (804) 225-2869 [email to: girby@mail.vak12ed.edu] or to Dr. Cheri Magill, director of accreditation, at (804) 786-1062 [email to cmagill@mail.vak12ed.edu].
