Adequate Yearly Progress

**Please note that with the approval of the NCLB Flexibility Waiver, many of the requirements included in the information below are no longer in effect. The information will remain posted for reference.**

Under the No Child Left Behind Act (NCLB) of 2001, states and school districts are required to make annual Adequate Yearly Progress determinations for districts and schools, respectively. The ultimate goal of AYP is to have all students proficient in reading and math by the year 2014.
