Updates - AMAO
Updates – AMAO Calculating AMAO 2 status Cohort for AMAO 2 is: All LEP students, K-12, who have been in U.S. schools for 4 or more years who have two years of WESTELL data AND are at Level 3 or above or who did not reach English proficiency the prior year OR were below Level 3 the prior year who met the English proficient level the second year Percentage Becoming Proficient: Defined proficient as a Level 4 Composite with all sub-skills at Level 3 or above
Updates AMAO AMAO 3 = AYP status of LEP subgroup AMAO status should be determined by early September Counties that fail to make AMAO status will receive written notification and follow up technical assistance
Updates – Title III Applications Planning targets for AMAO improvement 1.Take the ending goal target for (89%) 2.Subtract the difference between your CURRENT score (for example 83%) and end goal (89%) to determine how much increase your county needs to make during the next 8 years (89 – 83 =5%) 3.Divide the total needed increase by 8 years (5 / 8 years =.625) to determine how much annual increase is needed each year
Updates – Accommodation Study Note- Planning targets are NOT your official AMAO targets. All counties must meet the same state-level AMAOs However, appropriate front-end planning and goal setting will eliminate the need for extreme growth toward the end of the trajectory Counties are encouraged, but not required, to set individual county annual growth goals for the next eight years If a county does not meet its own goal, there is no state- level accountability until the county reaches that point where they dont meet the state AMAO target For Reporting purposes any county that has less than 50 matching student scores did not meet the minimum N size of 50
Updates Title III Applications –Reduction in federal funding –Revised amounts –Reviews complete by Sept. 15 Consolidated Monitoring –Inviting cross-monitoring Accommodation Study
