Some Area Schools Fail to Meet No Child Left Behind Standards

The State Department of Education has released its annual report card and Dothan and Northview High Schools have failed.

Under the No Child Left Behind Act, each school must meet certain standards in math reading, and attendance.

The act requires a specific demographic breakdown to make sure all students are being taught on their level.

Dothan and Northview High Schools have problems with students attending the graduation exam, or participating in the free and reduced meals program.

“We work to create a plan, an improvement plan that's going to address the needs of those kids and be very specific about what those needs are and really help our instructors in that area,” said Dr. Sam Nichols of Dothan City Schools Superintendent
