Assistant Superintendent Curriculum and Instruction. Thornton Fractional Township High School District 215. Teachers and administrators alike are challenged by the No Child Left. Behind Act of 2001 to incorporate scientifically based research SBR into. their decision making for programs and practices that will improve student. achievement Educational researchers also are challenged to produce stud. ies that are faithful to scientifically based principles Now more than ever. before practitioners and researchers need to link their efforts to address. student learning as a result of the No Child Left Behind legislation The chal. lenge is to base practice on rigorous evidence that specific programs will. NCREL Viewpoints, work to guide teaching and learning and at the same time to understand. the reality that this type of research is not readily available or understood by. most administrators and classroom teachers Finding new opportunities for. educators policymakers and researchers to work together on behalf of. schools affected by the new legislation is a challenge and it instills hope that. SBR will provide better direction and evidence that student achievement. can improve, This essay outlines the place of SBR in the No Child Left Behind Act of. 2001 provides details about the mandate for SBR in the Comprehensive. School Reform legislation and explains the rationale and challenges for. using SBR in making education decisions It also provides important defini. tions and outlines tools for translating research into practice. Prioritizing SBR, The No Child Left Behind Act redefines the federal role in K 12 education by. stipulating that federally funded programs and practices must be grounded in. SBR Funding is determined in part by whether programs and practices have. a basis in scientific research Beghetto 2003 The No Child Left Behind. NCLB Act mentions the term scientifically based research 111 times and. SBR is mentioned extensively in Title I to promote school wide reform and. ensure the access of children to effective scientifically based instructional. strategies and challenging academic content NCLB Act 2002 Title I. Section 1001 9 Title I the largest federally funded program for education. ally disadvantaged children requires both state and local education agencies. to use SBR for targeted assistance schools to strengthen the core academ. ic program It also calls for school improvement efforts that seek to identi. fy and implement professional development instructional strategies and. methods of instruction that are based on scientifically based research and. that have proven effective in addressing the specific instructional issues that. caused the school to be identified for school improvement NCLB Act. 2002 Title I Part A Section 1116 4 B ii, All technical assistance whether provided by a state agency higher edu. cation or a state approved professional development provider also must. comply with the SBR mandate by guaranteeing that new curriculum. instructional strategies or specific initiatives that promise to improve the. learning of low achieving students meet SBR requirements Subparts of Title I. also cite SBR under Reading First Early Reading First Even Start Literacy.

instructional materials such as software or reading programs or funds are. used for establishing partnerships between professional development. providers and local school agencies all efforts need to be screened through. the SBR mandate,SBR in Comprehensive School Reform. The SBR legislation has posed a challenge to schools seeking to implement. reform strategies through the Comprehensive School Reform CSR. Program With the availability of additional funding schools can make a. commitment to work with an outside provider who must demonstrate that a. particular reform program has proven SBR results and is replicable to the. school using CSR This initiative has far reaching implications since it. addresses every aspect of the school all grades and key subjects primari. ly English and mathematics curricula and instructional practices school. management parental involvement community involvement and school. organization Herman 2002, CSR is usually initiated when individual school improvement efforts are not. successful and assessment of data indicates that students are not meeting. standards Making Good Choices A Guide for Schools and Districts Hassel. 1998 offers a process for selecting a CSR model that requires identifying. two or three models to find the best match between the model provider and. the local school needs Since 2001 and the reauthorization of the.
