We're trying our best to meet NCLB requirements, but seem to have more questions than we do answers! Can you suggest a resource?

Many educators are still struggling with questions about NCLB implementation in areas including assessment and accountability, measuring school progress, education services, grants, and more. The U.S. Department of Education has recently launched a Hotline for school district superintendents. The toll free Hotline number is 1-888-625-2787. Superintendents may also email questions to NCLBSUP@ed.gov. The telephone line will be staffed weekdays from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. EST.

The goal for this new resource is to provide prompt, effective assistance to district leaders. For additional information visit http://www.ed.gov/news/pressreleases/2003/12/12182003.html.
