Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP) Guide for Texas Public School Districts and Campuses, 2003.
Texas Education Agency, Austin. Div. of Performance Reporting.
Under the No Child Left Behind Act (NCLB), all public school districts, campuses, and the state are evaluated annually for Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP). The Texas AYP plan meets the requirements of the NCLB, maintains the integrity of the Texas assessment program, and provides a mechanism for evaluating district and campus AYP in 2003. Following an introduction, the guide provides a system overview, with key dates for the evaluation process and definitions of campuses and districts to be evaluated. Section 3 describes the criteria for evaluation of AYP and describes the results to be evaluated, the performance measure, performance and participation standards. The fourth section discusses appeals, and the fifth section discusses some future considerations for AYP evaluation. Section 6 contains seven appendixes with supplemental information, including the calculation of AYP status for a sample school. (SLD)
