PROVIDENCE, R.I. --Almost two dozen Rhode Island schools face sanctions or government intervention
under the federal No Child Left Behind law because of poor test scores, according to state education
That list released Monday includes every Providence middle school, where administrators are trying to
enact reforms as students return to class Tuesday.
The majority of schools that failed to improve tests scores are in Providence, where 10 of 25 elementary
schools also face sanctions.
Those measures can include forcing school administrators to offer free tutoring, allowing parents to send
their children to better-performing schools or entire school restructurings.
Seven elementary schools in Providence, two in Pawtucket and one in Central Falls must offer students
free after-school or weekend tutoring because of poor test scores.
