Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP)
Q: What is the status of 2013 AYP?
A: TEA has requested that the U. S. Department of Education (USDE) waive specific provisions of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA), as amended by P.L. 107-110 No Child Left Behind (NCLB) Act of 2001. The waiver requests that the current Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP) calculations and performance targets be replaced with the state’s robust accountability rating system. The new system meets the intent and purposes of the ESEA statute which would allow the state’s existing systems of reform and interventions to guide the support and improvement of teaching and learning.
Q: If the USDE does not approve the waiver request, then how will schools and districts be evaluated for AYP in 2013?
A: If the waiver is approved, the Accountability System Safeguard identifies areas of needed intervention for state and federal purposes. If the waiver is not approved, the commissioner will have to consider other options that will meet federal requirements for 2013. There are ongoing discussions with USDE on the requested waiver but a final decision is still pendingTexas 2012 NCLB Report CardsTexas 2011 NCLB Report Cards
