    May you tell me if my ideas on NCLB and AYP are correct? And if not, where did I go wrong?

    No Child Left Behind
    was enacted to increase accountability in schools to ensure all students were meeting rigorous state standards.

    Some of the measures used are standardized tests results that are broken down according to demographics.

    States can receive funding to help them reach adequate yearly progress (also reported by demographics). Schools must reach the state's goal within 12 years.

    Students from 4-8th grade must also show proficiency in reading and math on a national test.

    If schools/school districts fail to make AYP sanctions will result up to and including loss of accreditation.

    The assessments used for NCLB are tests developed base on individual state standards. The assessments were not national tests. Even now with CCCS, there is no national test.

    I highly doubt any principal would ever ask you specifically about NCLB or AYP at an interview.

    Principals will likely ask you about your familiarity with the new CCSS and SBAC along with the typical classroom management questions.

    ^^^ Yeah, around these parts they want you to be familiar with the CCSS and the PARCCs.
