Adequate Yearly Progress - (AYP)
Lake Travis Independent School District met 2012 Adequate Yearly Progress
Lake Travis ISD met the AYP standard at the district level and at each campus level. AYP is part of the federal accountability system brought about by NCLB (No Child Left Behind). A district/campus may be evaluated on up to 30 measures.
AYP indicators include performance and participation in state assessments in the area of Reading/English Language Arts (ELA) and Mathematics.
The performance standards are 87 percent for Reading/ELA and 83 percent for Mathematics for each student group evaluated. The participation standard is 95 percent.
Grades 3-8 and 10 are the only grades evaluated for AYP.
The student groups evaluated are all students, including African American, Hispanic, White, Economically Disadvantaged, Special Education, and Limited English Proficient (LEP).
The assessments used for AYP evaluation include 2011-2012 TAKS Results for grade 10, and 2011-2012 STAAR results for grades 3-8 at the TAKS proficiency standard.
Minimum Size Requirements
For student groups to be included in the AYP performance/participation calculation, a district or campus must have:
Test results for 50 or more students in the student group (summed across Grades 3-8 and 10) for the subject, and the student group must comprise at least 10 percent of all test takers in the subject, or
Test results for 200 or more students in the student group, even if that group represents less than 10 percent of all test takers in the subject.
Graduation Rate is an additional indicator for high schools; the standard is 70 percent.
Attendance Rate is an additional indicator for elementary schools and middle schools; the standard is 90 percent.
