ARCHIVE No Longer Valid (SC)

The No Child Left Behind Act (NCLB) allows parents to transfer their child from a Title I school designated In Need of Improvement to another district school without that designation. All Manchester Public School are designated as In Need of Improvement (SINI), and therefore there are no eligible transfer schools. The only new students eligible to participate are siblings of students enrolled in the program prior to the 2012-2013 school year.
