Adequate Yearly Progress Report


As part of the Connecticut Accountability System and in compliance with No Child Left Behind (NCLB), Connecticut and all districts and schools within the state are required to create Report Cards at the beginning of the school year.  The No Child Left Behind Act of 2001 (NCLB) is the recent reauthorization of the original Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA). The primary function of NCLB is to close the achievement gap between groups of students by requiring greater accountability and offering increased flexibility and choice. States are required to determine annually if every school and district is making adequate yearly progress (AYP) toward reaching the goal, by 2014, of having 100 percent of their student population scoring at or above the Proficient level in mathematics and reading on their state standardized assessments. Schools and districts that continually fail to make AYP are faced with specific interventions mandated by NCLB.

To determine if Connecticut’s schools and districts have made AYP, the following three components must be examined:

  1. the percent at or above Proficient on the math and reading CMT and/or CAPT;
  2. the participation rate on the math and reading CMT and/or CAPT; and
  3. an additional academic indicator, which, for high schools is the graduation rate and for elementary and middle schools is the percent at or above Basic on the writing portion of the CMT.
