|Prepare for AYP Accountability Reporting|
Oregon’s application for the federal ESEA waiver has been submitted and is pending U.S. Department of Education approval. ODE is required to continue with the existing annual federal reporting for Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP) until final approval is received for the waiver. AYP includes annual measurable objectives for OAKS Reading and Math assessments, the Cohort Graduation Rates Report, and attendance rates. AYP calculates subgroup designations and an overall designation based on prior federally approved targets.
The current 2011-12 AYP targets for Reading and Math assessments are 95% for Participation and 80% for Academic Status. Targets for the Cohort Graduation rates applied to high schools are 67% for the 4-year Cohort Graduation rates and 72% for the 5-year Cohort Graduation rate. Elementary and middle schools use Attendance rates, which have a target of 92%. Draft AYP calculators are posted at www.ode.state.or.us/search/page/?id=677.
Districts should review their OAKS assessment data and submit their Third Period Cumulative ADM data collection accurately since it is used for determining the students who are accountable, as well as full academic year calculations, subgroup information, and attendance rates. Third Period Cumulative ADM collection opened April 26. Cohort graduation rates were published and publicly released in January 2012 and will be used for AYP unless a post publication appeal (www.ode.state.or.us/search/page/?id=2644) has been submitted by May 4, 2012 at 5 PM and is subsequently approved.
WebEx training for understanding the AYP report and how to review and correct applicable data will be presented on May 16 from 2 to 3:30 PM and will be recorded for later viewing. Instructions on how to participate will be available at https://district.ode.state.or.us/search/page/?id=211 the day before the training. Additional AYP timelines are available in the Assessment and Accountability Checklist at www.ode.state.or.us/wma/teachlearn/testing/admin/asmtacctbltychecklist1112.pdf . Contact your Regional Support Partner for more information.
