The Weatherford Independent School District is sharing this information about the district and your child’s campus with you as part of Weatherford ISD’s obligations under the federal No Child Left Behind Act of 2001 (NCLB). The Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) was first passed by Congress in 1965 as part of President Lyndon B. Johnson’s War on Poverty. The most recent reauthorization of this legislation is the No Child Left Behind Act of 2001 (NCLB). The primary function of NCLB is to close the achievement gap between groups of students by requiring greater accountability and offering increased flexibility in the use of funding. The NCLB Act affects almost every school district and charter school in the state.
This NCLB Report Card provides information for the the state, the district, and each of the district’s campuses for the 2010-2011 school year.
NCLB Report Cards for the state as a whole, all school districts and charter schools, and all campuses are also available on the Texas Education Agency’s NCLB web site at http://www.tea.state.tx.us/index4.aspx?id=4638&menu_id=798.
Glossaries in English and Spanish are also available at the website listed above and on each Weatherford ISD campus.
Information on these report cards includes:
- Assessment results for the Weatherford ISD and campuses in the aggregate and disaggregated by race/ethnicity, gender, disability status, migrant status, English proficiency, and economically disadvantaged showing two-year (2009-2010 and 2010-2011) trend data for each subject and grade tested:
- by performance level,
- with a comparison between annual objectives and actual performance for each student group, and
