NCLB- Federal Accountability

Federal Accountability
No Child Left Behind (NCLB) and Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP)
The federal No Child Left Behind system was implemented in 2002, and also primarily evaluates districts and schools based on student results on specific state assessments, although in a different way. When it was enacted, the NCLB law required a yearly increase in the student assessment passage rates required to earn a "Meets Adequate Yearly Progress" rating.
