Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 72, No. 191 / Wednesday, October 3, 2007 / Notices SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. Abstract Public Law 107–110, the No Child Left Behind (NCLB) Act of January 8, 2001, requires all schools, including Bureau of Indian Education (BIE) funded boarding/residential schools, to ensure that all children have a fair, equal, and significant opportunity to obtain a high-quality education and reach, at a minimum, proficiency on challenging academic achievement standards and assessments. In addition, the BIE is required by NCLB to implement national standards for homeliving situations in all BIE funded residential schools. The BIE is required to assess each residential school and submit a plan to the Congress, tribes, and schools which will bring all BIE funded residential schools up to the national standards. Information from all BIE funded residential schools must be collected in order to assess each school’s progress in meeting the national standards. Finally, the BIE is required to monitor programs, gather data, and complete reports for the U.S. Department of Education. To achieve these results, residential schools must prepare reports, develop curriculum, prepare financial planning documents, and establish standards to measure student progress. The BIE uses the Annual Report to the Department of Education and three other information collections for the BIE to collect data, measuring each school’s performance. When there is a lack of progress, the residential schools must show that they have developed school improvement, corrective action, or restructuring plans to address the problems of all students. Additional information collection requirements have been developed to implement the No Child Left Behind Act. rwilkins on PROD1PC63 with NOTICES II.
