2015-2016 AYP Notification

In March 2014, the U.S. Department of Education did not renew our state's conditional Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) Flexibility Waiver for schools receiving Title 1, Part A funds.  This decision has affected all schools in Washington State, which are now subject to the punitive requirements of the federal No Child Left Behind Act (NCLB).  Washington is currently the only state that has lost the waiver, and must revert to NCLB standards and timelines of assessment.  The has put the majority of schools and districts in our state, even the most highly acclaimed, in the position of receiving "failing" status under NCLB and requiring notification to parents and options for attending other schools and programs.
For schools to be succeeding under NCLB, schools must meet Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP) Standards.  AYP is an annual review of the progress that schools, districts and states have made toward the goal of all students meeting or exceeding state academic standards for reading and math.  For schools to meet AYP, 100 percent of all students, regardless of special needs or English language mastery, must meet proficiency standards. 
If a school receives Title 1 funds and does not make AYP, the school must meet additional federal requirements.  This includes providing written notification to the affected schools.  Below is the list of North Kitsap schools that are currently receiving Title 1 funds and are impacted by the required notification, and the notification letters that were sent the week of August 17th.
