In the Snake River School District, no school made AYP for school year 2010-2011.

AYP is an academic benchmark states are required to set and report each year under the federal No Child Left Behind Act. AYP is calculated based on results of the Idaho Standards Achievement Tests (ISAT). The ISAT measures reading, mathematics and language usage in grades 3-8 and science in grades 5, 7 and 10.
