What is public school choice?

Under the No Child Left Behind Act of 2001, school districts receiving federal funds under Title I, Part A are required to make choice available to all students who are enrolled in Title I campuses if their campus has been identified as in school improvement. A school is identified for school improvement when it fails to make Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP) for two consecutive years. A school remains in improvement until it makes AYP for two consecutive years. All students enrolled in Title I campuses identified for school improvement, corrective action, or restructuring are eligible to transfer to another public school campus within the district that is not in school improvement.
