In 2001, when the federal government decided to make education a priority, they focused their efforts on increasing the performance of U.S. primary and secondary schools. Their aim was to ensure that all students achieved academic success. The No Child Left Behind Act (NCLB) was born.Every student in public school must be tested annually and each public school must reach the NCLB standard for adequate yearly progress.
The government allocates NCLB funding for each state and noncompliance can result in the loss of millions in funding.
Each state is responsible for developing their own plan while still collecting, reporting, and maintaining student data and progress. As you can imagine, these requirements dramatically expand the scope of school records, emphasizing the importance of a sophisticated records keeping system.
“The tools provided by sophisticated, technology-based student information systems will play a key role in turning vast amounts of raw data into usable knowledge for managing and guiding the education process as required by the No Child Left Behind Act,” said James Parsley, of the American Association of School Administrators.
