The Kentucky Department of Education was scheduled to release at 2 p.m. today the Preliminary 2004 No Child Left Behind Adequate Yearly Progress Report on every school in the state. The final report for 2004 will be released in October.
The report issued today will give school officials and the public a "very preliminary look at how their schools are stacking up in their efforts to make progress toward complying" with requirements of the No Child Left Behind Act, said Department of Education spokesperson Lisa Gross today. "Things can change between now and when the final report is released in October, but this (preliminary) report will provide a pretty good idea of how schools are faring."
Information from the preliminary report about how area school districts measure up will be in Wednesday's Advocate-Messenger.
In a related development, Education Commissioner Gene Wilhoit on Monday announced that No Child Left Behind data on every school in the state have been added to a national Web page with the same information about schools around the country: www.schoolresults.org.
