No Child Left Behind
The Bucks County Intermediate Unit serves as a liaison with the Pennsylvania Department of Education and the Federal Department of Education in the implementation of the No Child Left Behind (NCLB) Act of 2001 which was signed into law on January 8, 2002. NCLB is the reauthorization of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965; but this version also serves to define a significantly different role for the federal government in education by refocusing the law on four principles:
•accountability for student achievement of academic standards
•increased flexibility and local control
•a greater role for parents in their children’s education programs
•greater emphasis on use of scientifically-based instruction
