Testing
Across the United States, the public's demand for raising the educational achievement of all students has led to a significant increase in high-stakes assessments for students as well as the emergence of comprehensive school accountability systems that hold schools, teachers, and students responsible for learning. The consequences associated with high-stakes assessment results are also increasing. Most states now rely on the results of high-stakes assessments to determine a wide range of critical events, including whether or not to award recognition to a school, impose consequences upon a school, or promote/graduate students.

Strategic Plans
Through the direction of the Superintendent, the strategic plan is reviewed every few years with a complete revision every five years.

STEM Initiatives
STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) Initiatives. A technically competent scientist in today's world must have the ability to communicate and collaborate and be effective in all skills in order to be successful. All students, even those pursuing non-technical careers, benefit greatly from math and science. In fact, STEM are a very effective way to acquire the full gamut of knowledge and skills.

NCLB
The No Child Left Behind Act of 2001 (NCLB) is a United States Act of Congress that is a reauthorization of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act, which included Title I, the government's flagship aid program for disadvantaged students. NCLB supports standards-based education reform based on the premise that setting high standards and establishing measurable goals can improve individual outcomes in education. The Act requires states to develop assessments in basic skills. States must give these assessments to all students at select grade levels in order to receive federal school funding. The Act does not assert a national achievement standard; standards are set by each individual state. NCLB expanded the federal role in public education through annual testing, annual academic progress, report cards, teacher qualifications, and funding changes.

International Baccalaureate Program
The International Baccalaureate (IB) Program has been in existence since 1968. Many educators are not aware of the program. Others feel the program is not suitable for urban American schools. Recently the number of U.S. school offering at least one IB program has increased. Find out why and draw your own conclusions about the program.
