The Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) was first passed by Congress in 1965 and represents a sweeping change in the federal government’s role in local public education. The law was originally authorized through 1970; however, the government has reauthorized the act every five years since its enactment. The current reauthorization of ESEA is the No Child Left Behind (NCLB) Act of 2001.

Annual Measurable Objectives (AMOs) Results
North Carolina has set Annual Measureable Objectives (AMOs) under No Child Left Behind (NCLB).

Our state met 77 of our 91 Annual Measurable Objects or 84.6%.  

ESEA School Status Lists
Under waivers to specific provisions of No Child Left Behind (NCLB), the State must implement a differentiated recognition, accountability, and support system for all of its LEAs and all Title I schools. Schools are identified based on the school’s performance, including the academic achievement and graduation rates of all students and all subgroups of students, and also based on how performance has changed over time. The State is not required to identify a local education agency (LEA) for district improvement or corrective action.
