Title: Opting Out of No Child Left Behind Act

Vote Smart's Synopsis:

Vote to pass a bill that allows Arizona to opt out of the No Child Left Behind Act of 2001 (NCLB) beginning fiscal year 2010-2011 if the legislature appropriates enough funds to offset the loss of federal funds as a result of opting out of the program.

Highlights:
- Requires the Department of Education to coordinate with the State Board of Education and School Facilities Board to conduct a study on the impacts of opting out of NCLB and submit a final report to the Governor, President of the Senate, and Speaker of the House on or before June 30, 2009. The study shall examine the following (Sec. 2):
    - Potential loss of federal funds; - Potential sanctions against school districts and charter schools; - To what extent school districts and charter schools will still be required to follow the mandates established under NCLB; - Impact on schools that do not currently accept funds from NCLB; - Current level of funds expended to comply with NCLB; and - Total amount necessary to offset the loss of federal funds as a result of opting out of NCLB.
