Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP) Status of Maine Schools: 2012-13 Results
The academic targets for 2011-12 testing remained the same as those for 2010-11, as the Maine Department of Education requested that the U.S. Department of Education allow them to remain the same while it submitted a request for ESEA Flexibility. The targets are the percentage of students who must be proficient in reading and in math. Proficient means students meet or exceed the standards in the content area. The targets must be met by the student population as a whole and also in eight subgroups: students with disabilities; economically disadvantaged; limited English proficient; and five ethnic groups.
In order for schools to make Adequate Yearly Progress in 2012-13, they had to meet the following targets in 2011-12 testing:
Schools also had to show a participation level in accountability testing of at least 95 percent in each category and average daily attendance of at least 93 percent in grades 3 through 8 for all subgroups. For high schools, a graduation rate of 83 percent or greater was required.
Of the 584 Maine public schools, the 2012-13 AYP status breaks down as follows:
