AYP - Adequate Yearly Progress
AYP Reports and Information
As of March 30, 2012, Georgia was one of only 10 states to have been granted a waiver from No Child Left Behind (NCLB). No longer will Georgia be bound by the narrow definitions of success found in NCLB. The waiver enables the state to hold schools accountable and reward them for the work they do in all subjects and with all students. Beginning 2012, the Georgia Department of Education will NOT release an AYP report. Replacing AYP will be the College and Career Ready Performance Index. For more information
*Special Note: No Child Left Behind (NCLB) expired in 2007 and while many of its policies remain in effect, officially, the law is now referred to by its original name, Elementary and Secondary Act (ESEA) of 1965.
