Great Lakes East
Comprehensive Center

NCLB Information

Signed into law by President George W. Bush in January 2002, the No Child Left Behind (NCLB) Act has brought many significant changes to schools nationwide, including the annual testing of students in Grades 3–8 in reading and mathematics.

In recent years, the states of the Great Lakes East region—Indiana, Michigan, and Ohio—have initiated several relevant and major reform efforts that reflect their commitment to closing the achievement gaps and ensuring that students are learning (NCLB Principle 1), making the school systems accountable (NCLB Principle 2), ensuring that information is accessible and parents have options (NCLB Principle 3), and improving teacher quality (NCLB Principle 4). The Great Lakes East Comprehensive Center will prioritize its technical assistance and support to address those areas identified by both the U.S. Department of Education and the state education agencies as most needed: assessment and accountability, high schools, innovation and improvement, instruction, teacher quality, and statewide systems of support.
