 Article of Interest - Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP)

Consequences For Schools That Do Not Make Adequate Yearly Progress
from the Michigan Dept. of Education, April 15, 2003

Under the No Child Left Behind Law, schools receiving Title I (for schools in economic need areas) funding that do not meet adequate yearly progress goals for at least two years in a row face consequences that increase in severity for each year the AYP target is missed.
 
If a Title I school identified for consequences makes AYP for one year, then the school stays at the previous year’s remedy. If a school makes AYP for two years in a row, the school is no longer identified for improvement, corrective action, or restructuring.
 
Schools not making AYP for two consecutive years are referred to as “identified for school improvement”, (28 schools):
• Must notify parents of their status.
• Must offer to allow students to transfer to a school (school choice) within the district that makes AYP.
• Must set aside up to five percent of their Title I funds for transportation. Districts may use an additional 10 percent of Title I funds, if necessary.
• Will improve performance and be eligible to receive federal funds for school improvement activities for technical assistance
• Must implement a two-year school improvement plan.
 
Schools not making AYP for three consecutive years are referred to as “continue identified for school improvement” (93 schools):
• Must notify parents of their status.
• Must continue offering school choice as described above.
• Must offer supplemental services (e.g. tutoring) to low-achieving students. A list of state-approved supplemental service providers is available from the Michigan Department of Education’s website, www.michigan.gov/mde.
• Must set aside at least five percent of their Title I funds for supplemental services. If needed, an additional 10 percent of Title I funds may be used to cover the costs of school choice, supplemental services, or both.
• Total allocation to cover school choice and supplemental services may not exceed 20 percent of Title I funds.
 
Schools not making AYP for four consecutive years are referred to as “identified for corrective action”(95 schools):
• Must notify parents of their status.
• Must continue to offer school choice and supplemental services as outlined above.
• Must follow one of the following options as selected by the school district:
o Replace the school staff who are relevant to not making AYP;
o Implement a new curriculum and provide professional development;
o Significantly decrease management authority;
o Appoint an outside expert to advise on school improvement plan;
o Extend school year or school day; or
o Restructure internal organization of school.
 
Schools not making AYP for five consecutive years are referred to as “identified for restructuring” (0 schools):
• Must notify parents of their status.
• Must continue to offer school choice and transportation as outlined above.
• Must begin planning for restructuring through one of the following options:
o Reopen as a charter school
o Replace all or most of relevant school staff
o Contract with outside entity to operate school
o Undergo a state takeover
o Undertake any other major restructuring of school’s governance that makes fundamental reform.
 
Schools not making AYP for consecutive six years(0 schools):
• Must implement restructuring utilizing the steps outlined above
