Dist. 1 Schools Show Progress in AYP

Anderson School District One’s 2010 Adequate Yearly Progress results under the No Child Left Behind testing program for schools show improvement. Two schools were added to the list of schools making AYP, Palmetto Middle School and Cedar Grove Elementary. The results for these schools were based on 2009 spring testing for all students in grades 3-8. No district in the state made AYP for the second year but Anderson One did show improvement in meeting 31 of 33 objectives for 2009 over 2008 when they met 28 of 33.

Palmetto Middle School was one of only three middle schools in the upstate to meet AYP based on grade-level performance and outstanding PASS test results. Cedar Grove Elementary, a Title I school, made AYP also based on student achievement and improvement. With targets becoming more difficult to achieve Palmetto High School did not make three of their thirteen targets set by state for them and did not make AYP. Full Story Here.
