After a substantial increase in requirements this year, 44 percent of Texas districts met Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP) targets, the Texas Education Agency announced today.
“Under this federal school accountability system, a school or district this year met AYP requirements if 87 percent or more of their students passed the state reading/English language arts test; 83 percent of their students passed the state mathematics test; 95 percent of their students participated in the state testing program and, depending on the grade level, had either a 75 percent graduation rate or a 90 percent attendance rate. Twenty-eight percent of Texas districts met these high standards.”
