No Child Left Behind

The No Child Left Behind Act of 2002 is a federal law that requires school districts to notify parents if the school their child attends is in “School Improvement”. Schools are in “School Improvement” if they fail to meet Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP) on Ohio Achievement Assessments for at least two years in a row.

Public School Choice:

Parents with a child attending a Title 1 school in School Improvement have the Public School Choice option to transfer their child to a school that is not in school improvement.

For the 2007-2008, 2008-2009, and 2009-2010 school years the Title 1 schools in Marion City that were in School Improvement were: Taft, McKinley, Garfield, Hayes, Harrison, George Washington, and the Marion City Digital Academy. For 2010-2011, Taft, McKinley, Harrison, Garfield, George Washington, and the Marion City Digital Academy were the Title 1 schools in school improvement.
