We won’t know whether Liberal schools met Adequate Yearly Progress until next fall, but things look promising. USD 480 Superintendent Lance Stout says early data looks stong for Liberal to meet AYP standards.
“We have in front of us very raw data. The very raw data is looking very good,” Stout said. “But for the state to look at making things official and consider all the sub groups and the fact that a few student took paper pencil tests because of circumstances, that’s what prolongs the official results. But that being said, we are very excited about the data being placed in front of us.
Stout says the official data should be available this fall.
Meeting AYP means a school district meets the state’s targets for the federally mandated No Child Left Behind program.
