High schools in Aberdeen, Firth and Shelley met Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP) for school year 2010-2011 in the report released by the Idaho Department of Education.
In the Snake River School District, no school made AYP for school year 2010-2011.
In the Blackfoot School District, the schools that made AYP included Fort Hall, Stoddard and Wapello Elementary and Blackfoot High School.
To make AYP, a school must meet the student achievement goalsâ€”or proficiency targetsâ€”set by the Idaho State Board of Education in 41 different target areas during a given school year. The 41 targets include students in the entire school, students with disabilities, students with limited English proficiency and students who are economically disadvantaged.
For reporting purposes (participation), Idaho does not report student data for fewer than 10 students in any category. For accountability purposes (proficiency), Idaho does not report student data for fewer than 34 students.
Each school's data is added together at the district level to determine the school district's AYP report.
No school district in Bingham County made AYP.
Schools, school systems and the state must meet proficiency benchmarks in nine subgroups, including five race/ethnicity groups; students with disabilities; limited English proficient students; economically disadvantaged students; and the school as a whole.
Idaho proficiency targets for the 2010-2011 school year are 85.6 percent in reading and 83 percent in math. These percentages are the same target figures as the previous school year.
