How does a school make AYP?

 

To make

AYP, each school and system

must

meet the

following criteria:

-

95% Participation: At least 95% of the students as a

whole

and

within

each

student

group

must

have

participated in the state mandated test.

 

-

Annual Measurable Objective: Each school, as a whole,

and each student group with at least 40 members must

meet

or

exceed

Georgia’s

Academic

Performance

standard.

-

Additional Indicators: Each school must meet the

standard and show progress on a second indicator.

 

What tests count towards AYP?

 

Georgia uses the Criterion-Referenced Competency Test (CRCT) for elementary and middle school, the Enhanced Georgia High School Graduation Test for the high school, and the Georgia Alternative Assessment for the most severe cognitively impaired students.

Does it

mean

a school

is

a

failing

school if it does not make AYP?

 

No.

In

many

cases,

schools identified as “needs

improvement” may, in fact, be exceeding or meeting the standard in most areas, but did not meet standards in all subgroups. The AYP reports break down student achievement by subgroups to make sure all students meet standards in all areas.

What happens if schools or school systems do not make AYP?

Public schools that do not make AYP for one year face no consequences.

-

-

Interventions begin at the end of the second year a

school does not make AYP and increase in severity as lons

as a school does not make AYP. At this point, the school is considered to be in Needs Improvement Status.

If a school makes AYP two years in a row, the school is no longer identified for improvement.

-

Parents have the Right…

-

to know the professional qualifications of their

child’s teacher(s), including the degrees and certifications held, and whether the teacher is

certified in their respective area of instruction.

-

to know the school improvement status of the

school.

to know the level of achievement of their child in each area of the state assessment.

-

to know if their child has been assigned, or has been taught for at least four consecutive weeks,

-

by

a teacher

who does

not

meet

the highly

qualified definition.

 

-

to

be

involved

in

the

planning

and

implementation

of

the

parent

involvement

program in their child’s school.

If you are interested in serving on the Title I Parent Advisement Group Committee (PAC) at your child’s school, please contact the school principal. ALL parents are invited to participate in this group.
