Adequate Yearly Progress

Adequate yearly progress (AYP) sets a standard for accountability, which measures states, schools and districts by the results of state-level tests in 2 main content areas — math and reading. AYP uses this assessment data to measure the academic performance of all students, including subgroups such as children whose families qualify as low-income. The goal — all students reach 100% proficiency math and reading, beginning in 2014.

The state must transition from the accountability framework of the flexibility request — which allowed our state to modify certain provisions of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) — to the standard regulations that govern school improvement. Schools and districts must make these changes during the 2014–15 school year.

Priority/Focus Schools for 2014-15
The U.S. Department of Education has allowed Washington to continue its support of priority/focus schools identified for the 2013-14 school year. We will use a methodology that blends the formula developed under the waiver with federal regulation.
