'No Child' Transfers

Students in public schools that do not meet the standard of Adequate Yearly Progress in test scores as mandated by the No Child Left Behind Act for two consecutive years have the option to transfer to schools that did meet the standard. All six of Columbia’s Title I elementary schools were faced with this school-choice sanction during the 2009-10 school year, leading to 116 transfers. Cedar Ridge, Grant, Mill Creek, Paxton Keely, Rock Bridge and Russell Boulevard elementary schools were not affected by No Child Left Behind transfers.
