From NCLB: "A state shall identify for improvement any local educational agency that, for 2 consecutive years,...failed to make adequate yearly progress as defined by the state's plan under section 1111(b)(2)."
In North Carolina, an LEA enters Improvement by missing any one target goal in the same subject (reading/language arts or mathematics) in each of three grade spans (3-5, 6-8, and high school) for two years in a row. To exit Improvement, an LEA must meet all target goals in one grade span (3-5, 6-8, and high school) in the subject area that placed the LEA in Improvement for two consecutive years. (The grade span meeting all targets can differ from one year to the next.) Since target goals do not have to be met in each of the three grade spans, an LEA could still not make AYP, but exit Improvement.
2009-10 testing results by grade spans may be reviewed for any North Carolina LEA by visiting the following link and entering the appropriate LEA code: http://accrpt.ncpublicschools.org/app/2010/leaimp/
Results from previous years are available at the following link (see "LEA Performance for Improvement Status"): http://www.ncpublicschools.org/accountability/reporting/improvestatus
