STATE INFORATION RELATED TO 2007 NCLB DATA: Data indicate that 75.8 percent – 884 – of Kentucky's 1,167 public schools made Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP) in the 2006-07 school year under the requirements of the federal No Child Left Behind (NCLB) Act, the Kentucky Department of Education announced September 12 th. AYP results are based on the Kentucky Core Content Tests' (KCCT) items in reading and mathematics. Schools are required to have specific percentages of students reaching proficiency or above in reading and mathematics each year and to meet other criteria in order to make AYP.
STATE INFORATION RELATED TO 2007 NCLB DATA: According to the data, 884 Kentucky public schools met 100 percent of their NCLB goals for AYP, while 283 schools did not. Of the 283 schools that did not make AYP, 231 made 80 percent or more of their goals.
STATE NCLB DATA Statewide, 92 percent -- 23 -- of the 25 target goals were met.
Consequences RELATED TO 2007 NCLB DATA: Schools and districts that are funded by the federal Title I program, which provides funds to ensure that disadvantaged children receive opportunities for high-quality educational services, will be subject to federal consequences if they do not make AYP in the same content area in any student group for two or more consecutive years. Student groups in Kentucky are minority students, low-income students, students with disabilities and students with limited-English proficiency. Statewide, 147 schools are subject to consequences outlined through NCLB: · 47 Title I schools are in Tier 1 consequences. · 34 Title I schools are in Tier 2 consequences. · 20 Title I schools are in Tier 3 consequences. · 40 Title I schools are in Tier 4 consequences. · 1 Title I school is in first-year Tier 5 consequences. · 5 Title I schools are in second-year Tier 5 consequences.
Consequences for the tiers increase each consecutive year that a school does not make AYP:
School districts also are held to the requirements of AYP under NCLB. Of Kentucky's 175 school districts in 2006-07, 86 – 49.1 percent -- met 100 percent of their target goals. Overall, 166 of 175 districts met 80 percent or more of their goals. For NCLB requirements, school districts are gauged on the total student population. This can mean that, even if every school within a district makes AYP, the district may not because of the total size of student populations and their performance. School districts also are subject to consequences, which can include rewriting district plans and receiving state assistance.
The 2007 NCLB data indicates, for districts: 21 Title I districts are in Tier 1 consequences. 27 Title I districts are in Tier 2 consequences. 13 Title I districts are in Tier 3 first-year consequences. 36 Title I districts are in Tier 3 second-year consequences.
Because of changes in implementation of NCLB for districts and schools, comparisons from 2006 to 2007 should be made with caution. An impact study will be done to determine the degree of genuine school improvement from 2006 to 2007 versus increases due to changes in NCLB policy.
Each SBDM will use the data in the process of updating their school improvement plan JMHS will visit the CATS data at the next common planning. The teachers have been reminded to document “Math in the Content Area” and are sending their documentation in the lesson plans to Mrs. Bentley.. The math department will meet and strategize how to best address the AYP target goals for next year. JMHS began offering Pre-Algebra to 9th Grade students that were struggling in Math as an 8th Grader. NCLB results and the new state requirement will be addressed. Beginning next year, of the 4 HS math classes – 3 credits must be Algebra I, Geometry, & Algebra II.

The public release date for information related to the Commonwealth Accountability Testing System (CATS) has been rescheduled for Tuesday, October 2.
