State and Federal Accountability

No Child Left BehindThe Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) – known since 2001 as No Child Left Behind (NCLB) – requires states to set Annual Measurable Objectives for increasing student achievement to ensure that all children have an opportunity to obtain a high-quality education.

Under the provisions of the two-year flexibility waiver granted by the U.S. Department of Education on June 29, 2012, the Board of Education set new Annual Measurable Objectives (AMOs) for raising achievement in the Commonwealth’s lowest-performing schools. These new annual objectives in reading and mathematics replace Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP).
