No Child Left Behind update


Four schools with successful appeals and two schools with cell modifications met Adequate Yearly Progress, raising the final total to 116 out of 286, or 41 percent.

Since the preliminary AYP results were announced on July 15, the following schools’ AYP status has changed from “not met” to “met:” Hanalei Elementary, Kula Aupuni Niihau PCS, Moanalua High, and Waihee Elementary.

An English Language Learner, or ELL, student source date file correction resulted in AYP status changes from “not met” to “met” for Kahului Elementary and Kealakehe Elementary.

The final No Child Left Behind status for School Year 2011-12 finds 142 schools in “Good Standing” (50 percent), 33 in “School Improvement” (12 percent), 12 in “Corrective Action” (4 percent), 13 in “Planning for Restructuring” (5 percent), and 86 in “Restructuring” (30 percent). Total percentages may not be exactly 100 percent due to rounding.

The No Child Left Behind Act (NCLB) of 2001 is a federal law requiring elementary and secondary schools to demonstrate proficiency and progress according to accountability standards set by the state and approved by the U.S. Department of Education.

The law requires states to implement an accountability system and report on performance measures related to Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP) in math and reading, participation and proficiency, graduation/retention rates, as well as other educational indicators, such as teacher qualifications.

To meet reporting requirements set forth by the law, the DOE publishes comprehensive reports annually, reflecting performance at both the state and individual school level.
