11 2008 Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP) in ELA Toward Annual Measurable Objectives--AUSD English Learners 2009 Target= 45% 49.9% All District AYP Targets
12 2008 Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP) in Math Toward Annual Measurable Objectives--AUSD English Learners 2009 Target= 45.5% 56.8% AYP Targets All District
15 Redesignations by Language Group in Grades 3-12 since R-30 Report (2.29.08) 66 languages are spoken by ELLs in AUSD. 10% of our ELLs in Grades 3-12 have been redesignated in the past 8 months. This includes: 11% of our Cantonese speakers 10% of our Vietnamese speakers 10% of our Tagalog speakers 6% of our Spanish speakers
16 Conclusions We have much to be proud of in the progress of our English Learners. We are exceeding all current targets. We cannot relax with AYP targets increasing so greatly each year. AND our Spanish-speaking ELLs need heightened focus based on their redesignation data (40+% below the 3 other large language groups in redesignations this year).
17 Lest We Forget Alameda Unified School Districts Goal #1: Continue to improve student achievement while also narrowing and closing the achievement gap in English Language Arts and mathematics between our lowest performing students (African American, Latino, English learners, and Special Education students) and our highest performing students.
