The state has tentatively listed 219 Arkansas schools as needing improvement under the federal No Child Left Behind Act. The schools appeared on the list released yesterday because they failed to meet the needs of poor children, minority children or children in other special categories. Earlier this fall, 123 Arkansas schools were listed under the federal No Child Left Behind law. Those schools were singled out because of low scores on standardized tests among allstudents at the schools. The schools listed yesterday were singled out because a specific subgroup of children failed to perform adequately on standardized tests. Parents of children in listed schools will have the option of transferring their children to another school within the district.
