No Child Left Behind (NCLB) Act
No Child Left Behind (NCLB) is a federal law intended to ensure that schools provide parents with more accountability, choice and information. Its passage in 2001 signaled an increase in the federal government's role in dictating how education is delivered at the local level.

Under this legislation, all states that receive federal funding are required to test students in grades 3 through 8 including students with disabilities in English language arts and mathematics in order to measure yearly progress. The tests align with NYS Learning Standards and the results are used to determine whether schools and districts are making adequate yearly progress in achieving those standards.
