No Child Left Behind

The No Child Left Behind (NCLB) Act of 2001, also know as the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA), recognizes that all children can achieve the same high standards when taught by highly qualified teachers using proven methods in an appropriate learning environment.  The goal of this act is to provide educators assistance in planning and implementing programs that are designed to close the achievement gap between disadvantaged students and their peers.  Accountability, choice, flexibility, and methodology are the four pillars of reform in NCLB and are used to establish requirements and regulations for states to determine eligibility.  The New Jersey Department of Education administers funds under NCLB through a consolidated grant application process to local education agencies (LEA).  The Edgewater Park Township School District  is a participating LEA working on behalf of students residing within our community.
