The North Dakota Department of Public Instruction released 2012-13 statewide adequate yearly progress results last week for all public schools and public school districts in North Dakota. These reports identify a school's or district's overall student performance against certain key indicators. Statewide, 267 out of 456 schools failed to make AYP under the federal No Child Left Behind Law. Only schools that receive Title I funding are listed. Title I schools have a certain percentage of students from low-income families who are eligible for free and reduced price lunches.
Adequate yearly progress reports are generated based on student achievement in reading and mathematics on the state's annual assessments, student attendance rates in elementary and middle schools, and student graduation rates in high schools. All school, district, and state performance rates are compared against approved achievement goals. Schools were required to meet those goals for subgroups of students, such as students from minority groups, students with disabilities and students from low income families, as well as for the student body as a whole. Schools didn't make the mark if they failed to show progress in one or more categories.
Schools that fail to make AYP are required to take measures to correct problems, such as setting aside 10 percent of their Title I funding for teacher training or adopting a new curriculum.
