Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP)

On September 30, 2013, the Texas Education Agency secured a waiver from the U.S. Department of Education for specific provisions of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA), commonly known as the No Child Left Behind (NCLB) Act of 2001. One of the key changes in the NCLB waiver is the elimination of the Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP) designation. This change is not necessarily permanent. All aspects of the waiver are subject to revision or revocation.

Although the original accountability provisions are not currently enforced in Texas, under NCLB all public school campuses, school districts, and the state are evaluated for Adequate Yearly Progress. Districts, campuses, and the state are required to meet AYP criteria on three measures: reading/language arts, mathematics, and either graduation rate (for high schools and districts) or attendance rate (for elementary and middle/junior high schools).

A campus, district, or state that receives Title I, Part A funds and fails to meet AYP for two consecutive years is subject to certain requirements such as offering supplemental education services, offering school choice, or taking corrective actions.
