Schools that have failed to make adequate annual progress as defined by the federal No Child Left Behind law must undergo major changes. Those changes can fall under five general categories. A failing school can be turned into a charter school, taken over by the state education agency, partner with a private nonprofit operator, have its principal and/or faculty replaced or be subject to another idea tailored to its needs. Under the plan released yesterday by D.C. Schools Chancellor Michelle A. Rhee, no school will be converted into a charter or taken over by the D.C. Office of the State Superintendent of Education. In some cases, schools will use more than one restructuring option.
