Summary "The No Child Left Behind Act (NCLB) requires states to provide assistance to districts in improving the schools within their purview. The purposes of this Handbook are to survey the research related to statewide systems of support, to present the experience and insights of educational leaders in how such support can best be conducted, and to derive actionable principles for improving schools. It is intended for use not only by the staff of the U.S. Department of Education-sponsored Regional Centers that serve state department staff but also by the staff of school districts and schools." --Book Jacket
