WORTHINGTON — Though four school districts in southwest Minnesota still fell below the state’s benchmark for student achievement — known as Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP) — this year, students in more area districts performed well enough to stay off the long list of districts not making that grade.
District 518, WALA will both face NCLB sanctions
WORTHINGTON — A little more than half of area school districts succeeded in making Adequate Yearly Progress this year, while eight did not, according to information released Monday by the Minnesota Department of Education.
Five school districts and 12 schools in southwest Minnesota, including District 518 schools, failed to make Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP) in 2008, up from five districts and eight schools failing the previous year.
AYP is calculated using the results of the math and reading Minnesota Comprehensive Assessments II, in accordance with federal No Child Left Behind legislation.
