School Choice/SES

NCLB Public School Choice

The federal No Child Left Behind Act (NCLB) requires school districts to give students at schools identified for “school improvement” the option of transferring to another higher performing school. All students who are eligible for school choice will receive a letter in the mail. Only students who attend a school identified by the Louisiana State Department of Education for “school improvement” are eligible for School Choice. Being identified for “school improvement” does not mean that the school is being closed. Transferring to a “receiving school” is a parental decision. However, students do not have to attend a different school. The Orleans Parish School Board (OPSB) had only one school identified for school improvement under NCLB for 2012-2013, which was the Architecture, Design, and Engineering Preparatory School (ADEP).
