AYP ratings to be released Oct. 14
AUSTIN - The public release of the preliminary 2008 Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP) results has been delayed until the afternoon of Oct. 14, due to a processing issue with a small number of students tested on the reading and mathematics TAKS-Modified (TAKS-M) tests in grades 4 and 7 only.
The TAKS-M results for these students were accurately reported to districts in May; however, the final student data file provided to the Texas Education Agency (TEA) in June did not include these results. The delayed release will ensure that TEA has sufficient time to process updated information from the test contractor that will include the results of all students tested on TAKS-M in spring 2008.
It is anticipated that the AYP status for only a few districts and campuses will be affected.
Due to the revised release schedule, the deadline for submitting an AYP appeal has been extended from Oct. 17 to Oct. 24 for all districts.
