Yearly Progress 2004
AYP in New Mexico
Under the No Child Left Behind Act (NCLB) of 2001, states and school districts are required to make annual Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP) determinations for districts and schools, respectively. The ultimate goal of AYP is to have all students proficient in reading and math by the year 2014. The New Mexico Public Education Department, in collaboration with numerous representatives of schools districts and related education organizations, has developed the definition of AYP for New Mexico and the exact formulas to calculate it.
In order for a district or school to make AYP, all of the following requirements
must be met:
a 95% participation rate in state reading and math assessments.
targets for either proficiency or decrease non-proficiency in reading
targets for one other indicator – attendance rate for elementary
and middle schools, or graduation
rate for high schools.
assist the public in understanding the process for evaluation of AYP,
the PED has produced a "HOWTO" for evaluating AYP entitled "How
to make adequate yearly progress (AYP - Quick Reference Guide."
