How Were These AMO's Derived

State established performance targets that assess the progress of student subgroups, schools, school systems, and the state annually. This annual measurement insures that the non-proficient students will be reduced in half (by 50%) in reading/language arts and mathematics by the end of the school year in 2016-2017.

Between the 2010-2011 baseline and the 2016-2017 (six years) goal of reducing the percent of non-proficient students in half for proficiency, the state will establish annual performance targets. These targets, or annual measurable objectives, are set for reading, mathematics, and attendance and cohort graduation rate. Every school and school system will be held to their own unique set of annual measurable objectives based on their performance in the 2010-2011 baseline year. These objectives will be adjusted to each school’s grade-level enrollment and structure (e.g., K-5, 6-8, K-8, K-12). Schools with grade structures that do not include tested grades will still be accountable for student performance; e.g., the performance of third-graders who come from K-2 schools will count for both the current school and the K-2 school previously attended.

NOTE: When a baseline is established after 2010-2011 the performance goals are calculated 6 years out from the baseline and the graduation goals are calculated 9 years out. New schools and subgroups are assigned either the Local Education Agency (LEA) level AMO or State level AMO (lowest of the two) for their 1st year baseline.
