NCLB and AYP In 2001, congress passed No Child Left Behind. The first thing to understand about the law is that it pretty much means what its name suggests: every child should be passing state tests on math and reading. Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP) requirements mandated by the federal NCLB law gave the states control over how they would measure whether a student was “proficient.” States set the standards, wrote the standardized tests, and set the formula for student growth. The goals of NCLB are that all schools and districts receiving funds for socially and economically disadvantaged children (Title I) must bring all students up to state standards by 2014.

Indiana and AYP Schools in Indiana that do not show growth will be on improvement status which consists of a series of interventions that become more extensive for each additional year a Title I school does not make AYP. It takes two consecutive years of NOT MAKING AYP in the same subject area (English or Math) to enter school improvement status and two consecutive years of MAKING AYP in that subject to be removed from improvement status. Corporations and school in improvement status that make AYP for one year remain at the current year of improvement. If the corporation or school makes AYP the following year, it is removed from improvement. If AYP is not made the following year, improvement status interventions continue to progress. One of the requirements to a school being on AYP is developing an intervention plan which is where Whiteland Elementary School has been for 2013-2014. PUBLIC RELATIONS PROJECT
