Adequate Yearly Progress
Under the Federal No Child Left Behind Act, all schools must show that they are making adequate yearly progress for all students in order to reach the goal of full proficiency for all students in reading and math by 2014. Under the law, each state must use an “Adequate Yearly Progress” (AYP) formula to look at data from the annual New England Common Assessment Program (NECAP) and make comparisons across different sub-groups of students. These results, measured against the target, indicate whether a school’s progress in student performance is adequate each year. Progress is measured in each school based on the overall school population, but progress is also determined at the subgroup level. Those four subgroups are comprised of students with disabilities, students receiving free or reduced lunch, minority students, and English language learners. Schools must have at least 40 students in these subgroups to receive an AYP determination.
2014 AYP Determinations by School
Chamberlin School – Year 1 Corrective Action
Orchard School – Year 1 Corrective Action
Rick Marcotte Central School – Did not make AYP for the first time
Frederick H. Tuttle Middle School – Year 1 Corrective Action
South Burlington High School – Year 2 of School Improvement

This year, all students must be proficient in reading and math based on their NECAP scores. The Vermont Agency of Education has identified all 5 schools as schools not making Adequate Yearly Progress.
As a result of Chamberlin School and Orchard School not making AYP for more than one year, and Rick Marcotte Central School not making AYP for the first time, families continue to have the choice to either send their child(ren) to their neighborhood school or they may attend Rick Marcotte Central School.
