WEB: AYP Results Released for Moore County
The county missed the mark for the second year in a row, which means the district receives the designation of "Title I School Improvement," according to the N.C. Department of Public Instruction.
Adequate Yearly Progress measures the yearly progress schools make, or fail to make, toward achieving grade-level reading and mathematics standards. NCLB was designed to have all public school children test at grade level in reading and mathematics by the end of the 2013-14 school year.
(See an explanation of the standards .)
Ten out of 19 county schools have met the provisional AYP thus far. (Check out the list of county schools .)
Schools are still waiting to receive the second half of the scores that factor into AYP standards. Mathematics scores have been delayed by the state until October.
