In April 2014, the U.S. Department of Education notified Washington’s Office of the Superintendent of Public Instruction (OSPI) that it would be losing its waiver of certain portions of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (formerly No Child Left Behind Act of 2001). This decision brought back Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP) as an accountability measure for all public schools that accept Title I funding in the state. Washington has had a waiver in place since the 2011-12 school year; therefore, AYP is calculated based on results from 2010-11, 2013-14 and 2014-15.
The distribution of Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP) letters were sent as required in September 2015 to Port Angeles School District parents/guardians in multiple formats, including paper and electronic versions, one a district letter to all students’ households and school letters for Roosevelt Elementary School and Lincoln High School, respectively.
All schools and districts that accept Title I funds and that did not make AYP for 2014-15 must send required letters to parents and students.
Roosevelt Elementary School did not make AYP for 2014-15; Lincoln High School remains a Focus School for improvement for a fourth year in a row due to its graduation rate.
The School District administration and Board of Directors believe all of its schools are excellent schools, and its dedicated teachers and staff work very hard each day for our children. AYP is just one measure of success in schools. Please note the only reason these letters had to be sent home is because Washington lost its waiver.
