In a recent update to our Workshop application, the NCLB standards were removed for course management and setup. This means courses can no longer be tagged with NCLB standards. As you may know, the NCLB standards were the national academic standards implemented in 2002 until they were repealed in 2015. The current standards are called ESSA, and they were introduced in 2016. Our development team is working on adding a new category for labeling courses using the ESSA standards in the integration of Workshop with Strive. For courses already labeled with NCLB standards, Workshop still provides access to the NCLB report to pull data for staff development statistics tied to NCLB standards.
If you were using NCLB to track Title 1 information, the NCLB report remains accessible in Workshop and can still pull information from courses tagged previously using those standards.
For future tracking, you can create additional Credit Types for NCLB to tag new courses for your reporting.
