No Child Left Behind (NCLB) is a federal law governing elementary and secondary education. This law is designed to hold states and schools accountable for the academic achievement of all students, ensure the qualifications of the teaching paraprofessional, and provide parents access to information and choice regarding their childís education.

The following are brief descriptions of relevant NCLB titles.
Title I
Improving the Academic Achievement of the Disadvantaged: The purpose of Title I is to ensure that all children have a fair, equal, and significant opportunity to obtain a high-quality education, and reach, at minimum, proficiency on challenging State academic achievement standards and state academic assessments.

Title II
Preparing, Training, and Recruiting High Quality Teachers and Principals: Title II provides grants to State and local educational entities, and State agencies for higher education in the efforts to 1) increase student academic achievement through improving teacher and principal quality, and increasing the number of highly qualified teachers, assistant principals and principals in our classrooms and schools; and 2) to hold local educational agencies and schools accountable for improvements in student academic achievement. Title II D - Enhancing Education through Technology: The primary goal of Title II, Part D is to improve student academic achievement through the use of technology in elementary and secondary schools.

Title III
Language Instruction for Limited English Proficient and Immigrant Students: The purpose of this piece of NCLB is to help ensure that children who are limited English proficient, including immigrant children and youth, attain English proficiency, develop high levels of academic attainment in English, and meet the same challenging State academic content and student academic achievement standards as their peers.
