SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- Thirteen Utah schools face sanctions for failing to make progress toward the reform goals of the federal No Child Left Behind law.

The Utah Office of Education says school test scores show the schools did not meet N-C-L-B's goals for annual yearly progress over two consecutive years.

Now all 13 schools must provide transportation to students wishing to transfer to higher performing schools. Some must also provide tutoring.

Overall 805 Utah schools meet NCLB requirements and 118 didn't.

But only 13 will face sanctions because they get federal money for teaching large numbers of low-income students.

N-C-L-B's goal is 100 percent student proficiency in math and reading by 2014.

Some Utah schools passed this year after previous failures.

Progress reports for all Utah schools are posted on the state office of education web site.
