Loveland (Colorado) High School is a comprehensive high school of approximately 1,500 students located 50 miles north of Denver. Two years ago, Loveland was not making annual yearly progress (AYP) in any subpopulation as required by the No Child Left Behind Act (NCLB). The scores of the general population were not much to brag about either. Loveland was a school in trouble, facing being put on watch. During the 2004-05 school year, the school developed a plan that worked for the school and involved an unprecedented effort from everyone, including principals, teachers, support staff members, and students. Knowing that to meet AYP, the school had to start by supporting the students and motivating them to improve their testing performance. In this article, the authors discuss how the school developed a plan to help students improve and began a multifaceted approach to making AYP.
