Federal Results

Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP) in No Child Left Behind (NCLB) requires the State Goals to increase at least once every three years to ultimately reach 100% proficient by the year 2013-14. There was a large increase in the goals as shown in the chart below. To be included in Federal Results, a group must consist of 30 or more students for the data to be a reliable indicator of progress toward the goals.
