Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP):
Each year the No Child Left Behind Act required the annual determination of whether schools, districts, and stated have made yearly progress (AYP) toward the goal of having all students meet rigorous state academic standards by the 2013-2014 school year. Each year, the performance of all students in the school and district, as well as subgroups of students, is measured against annual performance targets.
School Report Card:
The Oregon Department of Education produces yearly report cards for school and districts. These report were mandated by the 1999 state legislature and provide educators with an opportunity to communicate directly with parents and community members about how local schools are performing.
