No Child Left Behind Adequate Yearly Progress Reports:
The primary goal of NCLB is to close the achievement gap between groups of students by requiring greater accountability and offering increased flexibility and choice. The Connecticut State Department of Education launched a new website to help further communicate the adequate yearly progress of its schools and districts.
The Web site, http://ctayp.emetric.net, includes easy-to-find, detailed information on the progress of over 900 elementary and middle schools and 172 school districts in meeting the requirements of NCLB.
