No Child Left Behind numbers are in - WMC Action News 5 - Memphis, Tennessee

No Child Left Behind numbers are in

The numbers are in, and the Memphis City School system is one step closer to making sure your child is not left behind.

The district is making what it calls "significant progress" in meeting the standards set by the No Child Left Behind Act.

Five of the district's schools are OFF the High Priority List.

During the 2004-2005 school year 62 Memphis City Schools were on the list.

Now it's down to 57.

The five schools off the list are:

**Booker T. Washington High

**Georgian Hills Elementary

**Hawkins Mills Elementary

**Lanier Middle 

**Longview Middle

Not a single Shelby County school made the state's list this year.

All of the district's schools made adequate progress under No Child Left Behind.

Four county schools that were on the target list last year made it off this year by posting two years of consistent improvements.

The Tennessee Department of Education has set up a website that allows you to see the No Child Left Behind Results for every school system in the state.  Click here to visit.
