Safe Harbor A Method of Calculating AYP October 15, 2008 Information for this presentation are adapted from CDDRE (2008) handouts. Title I 2008 OBJECTIVES Discuss the procedures for SAFE HARBOR Estimate Safe Harbor and AMO Targets
Critical Numbers* 65 30/99/15 510 682 and 3 1 + 89590, +1 * Details to make better decisions about targeting students, school grades, AYP and student learning.
School or district makes AYP if the following criteria are met: METHOD REQUIREMENTCRITERIA Meet Benchmarks Regular AYP A.Participation95% B. Reading Proficiency65% (2008-2009) C. Math Proficiency68% (2008-2009) D. Other Criteria Improve Writing (3.0 for AYP) Improve graduation rate School grade 1% or 90+% 1% or 85% in current year Grade not D or F Safe Harbor E.A + D F.Reduction in % who are non-proficient 10% Growth Model G.A + D H.% of students on track to be proficientAMO (benchmarks) Source: 2007 Guide to Calculating Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP), TAC 2007 Look at handout: 2007-2008 Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP) Report – Page 2
Flow Chart of Qualifying for Safe Harbor 95% participation rate in each subgroup and whole school Graduation rate: 1% improvement or 85% or higher School grade not D or F WRITING 90, +1 90% to 100% or 1% growth (0% to 89%) SUBGROUPS 1+8, 30/99/15 100 or more students, OR 15% of total tested if 30-99 NOT less than 30 % scoring below proficient decreased by 10% NO Made AYP Did not make AYP STEP 1 STEP 2 STEP 3 YES
Example 1: Reading - Qualifying for Safe Harbor Group 1 + 8 No. Tested 30/99/ 15 Reading Tested 95% of the students 58% scoring at or above grade level in Reading?

Example 3: 10% Decrease 2006-2007% of students proficient (score 3+) in reading = 20% 2007-2008% of students proficient (score 3+) in reading = 27% 2006-2007Percent non-proficient in reading100-20 = 80 2007-2008Percent non-proficient in reading100-27 = 73 Does 80% to 73% represent a 10% reduction? YES NO 80 *.10 = 8.1 80 – 8.1 = 71.9
How can a school use safe harbor information? EXAMPLE: How many of your students are at Level 3 in Writing? 30 out of 50 students = 60% 50 *.90 = 45 students15 more students (2 and 3 surveys) Need 15 students in Writing to be able to use safe harbor (90+% ) Identify students (use information from Survey 2) to determine which students will be included in calculations. Set targets for subgroups not making AYP Help to close the achievement gap by targeting groups to ensure that each subgroup continues to make adequate yearly progress.
Example 4: Reading - Qualifying for Safe Harbor Group 1 + 8 No. Tested 30/99/ 15 Reading Tested 95% of the students 58% scoring at or above grade level in Reading? Improved performance in Writing by 1% 0r 90%+ % of Students below grade level in reading (10% decrease) Safe Harbor Reading 2008Y/N2008Y/N20072008Y/N20072008 TOTAL300996588904535 WHITE601007286883028 BLACK1401006588904035 ECON DIS125996389903937 SWD65985286884844 1.Did this school make AYP? 2.Did it meet the Writing criteria of 90% or +1? (Did it meet the graduation criteria of 1% or 85%) 3.Which subgroup(s) did not make AYP? 4.Does the subgroup(s) meet the 30/99/15 requirement? 5.Did the subgroup(s) decrease the non-proficient group by 10%
Qualifying for Safe Harbor 1.Meet AYP in Writing 2.95% participation rate in each subgroup and whole school 3.School has met the graduation rate criterion. 4.School is not D or F SAFE HARBOR requires a 10% reduction in the number of students who were non-proficient in the previous year.
