State and Federal Accountability
AYP Status for 2012-2013 School YearContent AreaOn June 26, 2013 New Hampshire's waiver request for flexibility from certain requirements of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) was approved for two years by the U.S. Department of Education. As a result, the Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP) federal accountability system and related school or district or "in need of improvement" designations were suspended in favor of a differentiated accountability system; thus, the 2012-13 report card reflects the transition. The new system sets individual performance targets (referred to as Annual Measurable Objectives) for each school and each student subgroup of 11 or more students over a six year time span, with the goal of reducing any achievement gaps by half. The waiver also focuses support on Title I schools in the greatest need of assistance, beginning in the 2013-14 school year. Click the link below for a list of designated schools:
