WHAT IS SCHOOL CHOICE?
The federal No Child Left Behind Act requires school districts to give students at schools identified for "school improvement" the option of transferring to another school. All students who are eligible for school choice will receive a letter in the mail. Only students who attend a school identified by the Louisiana State Department of Education for "school improvement" are eligible for school choice. These transfers are granted through the Federal Programs, Title I Department.
