AYP – Important Things to Note: Retest 1 scores are now used in the calculations. When an existing SWD subgroup did not make AYP, exited students (within 2 yrs) were included in the calculations. (LEP also.) You must meet 95% tested in each subgroup, in each subject first. You must then meet the targets for reading and math in each subgroup. You must then meet the threshold or show progress towards the other academic indicator (attendance). The threshold is 90%. Safe harbor is the first provisional status calculation applied. (Subgroup has reduced the percent of students not proficient by 10% from the preceding year and met the OAI.) Confidence interval is the second provisional status calculation applied. (This is a similar concept to the 1SE for students.) Targeted Assistance Schools have 3 options available to them for determining AYP: 1) using all students within the school, 2) using students actually served in the TAS program, or 3) using students eligible to be served in the TAS program. If a school meets using any of these 3 methods, DPI will use the method that allows the school to meet AYP. Trajectory growth is the fourth provisional status calculation. Students who are on trajectory to be proficient within the allotted time will be added to the number of proficient students and used in the AYP calculations. This option can not be used in combination with safe harbor or confidence interval.
Title I School Sanctions for not making AYP: The 1st year a school does not make AYP, they are on the watch list. No sanctions are applied. If a school does not make AYP for 2 consecutive years in the same subject area, they go into School Improvement and sanctions are applied. The more years a school does not meet AYP in the same subject, the more severe the sanctions become. Title I schools exit School Improvement after 2 consecutive years of making AYP in the same subject area that identified them for School Improvement. If a school makes AYP in the subject area that identified them for School Improvement, they are making progress towards exiting and do not move to the next level of sanctions.
