Been seeing a lot of articles about whether various schools in Texas met the NCLB standards, so I went to look at the TEA website. Here's the District Campuses Breakdown. (PDF)
GLEN ROSE ISD 213901 MISSED AYP READING (PERFORMANCE) NONE (the none is Title 1 SIP requirements)
GLEN ROSE H S 001 MEETS AYP
GLEN ROSE J H 041 MEETS AYP
GLEN ROSE EL 101 MEETS AYP RESULTS OF SMALL NUMBER ANALYSIS NONE
GLEN ROSE INT 102 MEETS AYP NONE
and here's Erath Excels
ERATH EXCELS ACADEMY INC 072802 MISSED AYP MATHEMATICS (PERFORMANCE) NONE
ERATH EXCELS ACADEMY INC 001 MISSED AYP MATHEMATICS (PERFORMANCE) NONE
I have to say again that I don't understand why my tax money is going to support charter schools that don't have the same accountability standards as public schools.
Here's FAQ for the AYP
Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP) refers to the federally mandated accountability system required by the No Child Left Behind (NCLB) Act of 2001 and the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA).
All public school districts, campuses and the state are evaluated annually for AYP. A Texas AYP Workbook is approved annually by the United States Department of Education (USDE) and meets the requirement to evaluate all districts and campuses for AYP.
I notice in one of the questions that in order to classified in the list of Needs Inprovement (SIP), that a school has to miss items such as performance for two years in a row.
1. If a Title I, Part A district or campus Misses AYP for Reading (Performance) one year and then misses AYP for Mathematics (Participation) the next year, will it be subject to Stage 1 of Title I SIP Requirements?
No, the district or campus that receives Title I, Part A funds must miss the same measure for two consecutive years. Mathematics and Reading are different indicators, so in this case, they would not be subject to Stage 1 Title I AYP Requirements.
P.S.Here's the list of schools in need of improvement and district list in need of improvement
