Background/ Summary:

The No Child Left Behind (NCLB) Act of 2001 embodies four key principles:

  • stronger accountability for results;
  • greater flexibility and local control for states, school districts, and schools in the use of federal funds
  • enhanced parental choice for parents of children from disadvantaged backgrounds, and
  • a focus on what works, emphasizing teaching methods that have been demonstrated to be effective.

In May 2002, California’s State Board of Education (SBE) demonstrated the state’s commitment to the development of an accountability system to achieve the goals of NCLB by adopting five Performance Goals:

  1. All students will reach high standards, at a minimum attaining proficiency or better in reading and mathematics, by 2013-2014.
  2. All limited-English-proficient students will become proficient in English and reach high academic standards, at a minimum attaining proficiency or better in reading/language arts and mathematics.
  3. By 2005-2006, all students will be taught by highly qualified teachers.
  4. All students will be educated in learning environments that are safe, drug-free, and conducive to learning.
  5. All students will graduate from high school.

On December 10, 2015 the President signed into law the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA), which reauthorizes the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965 (ESEA). The reauthorized law, ESSA, prioritizes excellence and equity for our students and supports great educators.”  The 2016-17 year will be a transition year with ESSA full implementation in 2017-18.

In the spring of every school year Central Union School District reviews the Local Education Agency Plan (LEAP) and revises the plan as needed by reviewing each of the California State Board of Education’s Performance Goals.

Performance Goal #3:

By 2005-06, all students will be taught by highly qualified teachers.

Beginning in the 2016-17 school year, ED is not requiring States to comply with the requirements of the ESEA, as amended by NCLB which set forth requirements for highly qualified teachers, the qualifications and duties for paraprofessionals, and use of funds to support compliance with highly qualified teacher requirements. In the future, Goal #3 will be eliminated.

Performance Goal #4:

Students will be educated in learning environments that are safe, drug-free, and conducive learning.

Current programs implemented:

  • Partnership: Kings County Sheriff
  • Kings View and County Mental Health Partnerships
  • Kings Partnership for Prevention Coalition
  • Second Step (K-5)
  • Project Alert (6-8)
  • Bullying Hotline
  • DoDEA: Department of Defense Educational Activity Grant
  • Positive Behavioral Interventions & Supports (PBIS)

Performance Goal #5:

All students will graduate from high school.

Central Union School District is a K-8 district. Our goal is to prepare the students both academically, socially, and emotionally to be successful as they enter high school.
