WSFA 12 News Editorial: Adequate Yearly Progress

Three  years ago,  47 Montgomery Public Schools were NOT making adequate yearly progress on achievement goals set under No Child Left Behind.

This year, 44 Montgomery Public Schools made ALL of their goals.

97% of the goals for all schools were achieved.

Eight schools missed by just one goal, mainly attendance. That shortfall may be addressed in part this year with an automated call to parents when a child misses school.

Carver High School made just one of 13 goals three years ago and made all 13 this year.

Jefferson Davis High School achieved two of 17 goals three years ago and 15 of 17 this year.

Lee High School achieved 3 of 21 goals three years ago and 16 of 21 this year.

AYP measures reading and math with the goal being 100% proficiency in all schools by the year 2014.

Montgomery's tracking to achieve that sooner.

Much more needs to be accomplished but it is encouraging to see progress being made.
