IMPORTANT INFORMATION REGARDING ADEQUATE YEARLY PROGRESS (AYP)

Post date: Aug 17, 2015 5:19:03 PM

Dear Parents,

The Federal Government requires that I inform you prior to the start of the school

year with information about our school’s Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP) status.

Because of our transition to the new Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium

(SBAC) assessment that information is not yet available to schools. Also, Vermont

received a waiver allowing us not to use the assessment results for accountability

purposes this year. Therefore I am writing to inform you that our AYP status has not

changed from the 2014-2015 school year. GMUHS is in year one of corrective action

for math and for the first time did not make AYP in reading.

Please contact me with any questions you may have about SBAC or AYP.

Sincerely,

Principal Tom Ferenc

GMUHS
