No Child Left Behind (NCLB) Act of 2001 requires the Ohio Department of Education to annually review the performance of districts with English language learners. The programs for English language learners in these districts must meet three targets. These targets are known as Annual Measurable Achievement Objectives (AMAO). They focus on:
- Annual progress in learning English
- Attainment of English language proficiency
- Meeting achievement targets in state academic assessments
Districts that did not meet all targets are required to notify the parents of English language learners. Below are model parent letters in both English and other languages for parents in districts not meeting AMAO.
