Public School Progress Reports Now Available

The Department of Public Instruction (DPI) has released its annual review of public school progress, as required under the federal No Child Left Behind Act. DPI assesses progress for individual schools and districts by measuring Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP), which is determined by standardized tests that students take each fall. As part of this review, the Department notifies schools that fall short of AYP standards. If a school does not meet AYP standards for two consecutive years, the school is identified as requiring improvement and could face sanctions once under that designation. For more information about AYP and to view how individual schools performed, click on the link above.
