AYP results explained to King George School Board

The King George School Board received details explaining the latest federal accountability data for annual yearly progress under the No Child Left Behind Act (NCLB) of 2001.  
School administrators provided reports at a meeting on Sept. 13.
The meeting and slide presentation are posted on our website.
60 percent of Virginia schools made AYP.  That translates to 1,104 out of 1,836 schools achieving AYP.
But four out of the five King George schools missed it.

King George Elementary School is the only county school that met or exceeded all federal accountability objectives during the last school year.  
That’s according to national AYP ratings released last month for 2010-11 by the Virginia Department of Education (VDOE) indicating the progress being made toward the goals of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA), also known as the NCLB.
No Child Left Behind legislation is designed to provide accountability for schools and their staffs to ensure that all children are provided what they need to achieve academic success.
For a school, a school division or the state to make AYP, it must meet or exceed 29 benchmarks for student achievement including participation in statewide testing.
The 2009-2010 benchmarks for achievement in reading and mathematics were required to be one-tenth of a point higher than during the previous school year.
For a school to have made Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP) for the current school year, at least 81.1 percent of students overall and students in all AYP subgroups (white, black, Hispanic, limited-English-proficient (LEP), students with disabilities and economically disadvantaged) must have demonstrated proficiency on statewide assessments in reading, and 79.1 percent must have passed state tests in mathematics.
The slide presentation by school administrators is available here; click here.
