Federal ESEA (NCLB) Accountability
The Elementary and Secondary Education Act was passed in 1965 as a part of the “War on Poverty.” ESEA emphasizes equal access to education and establishes high standards and accountability. The law authorizes federally funded education programs that are administered by the states. In 2002, Congress amended ESEA and reauthorized it as the No Child Left Behind Act (NCLB). The links below provide guidance for schools and LEAs that do not meet the requirements stated under Federal ESEA (NCLB) Accountability.
