Union County NC Schools Rank #1 in AYP Testing
The Union County NC School Board recently announced the preliminary results of the Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP) testing for the 2010-2011 school year. Union County Public Schools (UCPS) ranked #1 among North Carolina’s 15 largest school districts.
AYP is the measurement component of the federal No Child Left Behind legislation. AYP measures the yearly progress of schools against yearly targets in reading and mathematics. The targets included both proficiency and participation goals. Goals are set higher in three year increments. AYP reports grade level performance for schools as a whole and for sub-groups within each school.
How did the Union County schools do this year?
Thirty-two out of 52 schools met their AYP goals this year. 61.5% of the schools achieved 100% of their target goals. Additionally, seven schools missed meeting their AYP goals by only one goal. The district as a whole met 64 out of 73 goals or 87.7%.
