Please note that this information is for historical purposes only as this this program has sunset under ESSA (Every Student Succeeds Act).

Authorized in the No Child Left Behind Act of 2001 (NCLB), the District offers NCLB-PSC to parents of all students enrolled in a Program Improvement (PI) school and Schools-At-Risk for PI. As required by NCLB, the California Department of Education has identified Title I schools as PI based on the school not meeting academic targets known as Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP) for two consecutive years. Students enrolled in a PI school or Schools At-Risk for PI receive the option to transfer to a non-PI school.In addition, the California Department of Education also designates Title I Schools At-Risk of being identified for Program Improvement in the next school year. Schools-At-risk for PI may or may not be eligible for the NCLB-PSC program depending on test results in Spring 2012.The list may change due to California Department of Education data not being available at Choices brochure print time.
