At the Exeter Union School District meeting last Tuesday night Director of Technology/Student Achievement Chuck Delap reported on the recently released Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP) Phase II reports for the elementary school district.
AYP is the federal assessment of student proficiency on academic standards. There are three phases of the AYP. The first phase, released in August, gave the results from the Standardized Testing and Reporting (STAR) tests. The federal government judges scores based on proficiency and participation. All sites in EUSD met the Phase I AYP goal except for Wilson Middle School. Phase II integrates the results of the Academic Performance Index, the state assessment of STAR results, which were released in October and graduation rates. Schools must also have passed the AYP Phase I in order to pass Phase II. Wilson did not pass Phase II because it did not pass Phase I.
