    NCLB

    The No Child Left Behind Act of 2001 (NCLB) requires school, district, and state report cards containing certain information. The required information falls into three general areas: school improvement, teacher qualifications and test data. A school that fails to make adequate yearly progress in achievement must be identified for school improvement. The report must contain information about the professional qualifications of teachers in core academic subject areas (English, reading, language arts, science, mathematics, foreign languages, arts, civics and government, economics, history, and geography). Highly qualified teachers are those who satisfied the NCLB criteria during the school year. The report must also contain achievement data for specific subgroups, two-year achievement trends, and student participation rates.

    The Current No Child Left Behind Report Card George County Report Cards can be found on each school's page by clicking on the NCLB link.
