The Center on Education Policy, a Washington research group that seeks to promote public education, is expanding its work on the No Child Left Behind Act.

The center has hired Patricia F. Sullivan, a former deputy executive director of the Council of Chief State School Officers, to guide its new efforts to track the 3-year-old federal law, which contains a host of mandates aimed at raising student achievement.

Ms. Sullivan will become the director of the center next month, while Jack Jennings will assume the titles of president and chief executive officer. Mr. Jennings, a former senior aide to House Democrats on education, founded the center in 1995.

The center has been tracking the implementation of the No Child Left Behind law with two annual reports, updates on particular facets of the law, and national forums. The next report is due in March.
