What is Program Improvement? (PI)
President Obama signed the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) into law in December 2015, replacing "No Child Left Behind (NCLB)". Previous law required that a school district offer a transfer to any student who resides in the attendance area of a school in Program Improvement.
The new law no longer requires school districts to offer transfers based on Program Improvement identification. New guidelines will be implemented in the 2017/2018 school year. We are no longer offering Program Improvement transfers out of our Title I schools.
