Data & Reports

Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP)

Both Act 60 and the federal No Child Left Behind Act (NCLB) require states to have a system that holds public schools accountable for the academic achievement of their students. Act 60 also requires the secretary to make biennial determinations of whether schools are meeting the standards defined in the School Quality Standards outlined in the State Board Manual of Rules and Practices. These standards address a school's physical, social and academic climate.

Student Performance Results on State Assessments Reported by Subgroups

The No Child Left Behind Act requires that states report student performance annually by subcategories, including gender; major racial/ethnic categories; students with disabilities; economically disadvantaged students; students with limited English proficiency; and migrant students.

Consolidated State Application Accountability Workbook (with Approved 2006 Amendments)

Vermont's Adequate Yearly Progress Plan (AYP), required under the No Child Left Behind Act, was approved by the U.S. Department of Education on June 2, 2003. The Accountability Workbook is the official document that describes Vermont's approach to determining the annual progress of its public schools in ensuring that all students are meeting state standards by 2014. Schools that do not meet state standards, as specified in the workbook, will be identified for technical assistance. NOTE: In July 2006, the U.S. Department of Education approved amendments to the Accountability Workbook for the 2006 AYP decision. These amendments have been added to the original document. Accountability Review for Priority Schools Receiving Technical Assistance 
To meet provisions of the No Child Left Behind Act, the Agency of Education evaluated the 28 Title I schools that had been identified in February 2000 by the state using the state's accountability system. This review presents the accountability data for each of these schools and explains the criteria used to evaluate their progress.
