The No Child Left Behind Act requires schools to increase test scores by a specified amount. After a certain period of time, if a school fails to increase students' scores, then the school district must offer academic services at no cost to low-income students enrolled in the school. Services may include tutoring or special classes to help students in reading or math.
What other services does No Child Left Behind mandate?Some schools may also offer their students free transportation to a higher-performing school. Check with your school or school district about other choices that may be available under the No Child Left Behind Act.
