Choice Provisions in No Child Left Behind
Student Achievement and School Accountability Conference
Text (slide 16):
Specialty schools as choice options
- LEAs cannot disregard entrance requirements, such as evidence of specific academic ability or other skills, when identifying transfer options for students.
- For example, students wishing to transfer to a fine arts magnet school or to a school for gifted students would still need to meet the requirements to attend those schools.
