Safe Harbor

If a school does not meet the annual performance targets for each subgroup, a provision called Safe Harbor still allows a school to make AYP if the school meets all performance targets in the aggregate, and the subgroup meets the other academic indicator; and the percentage of students achieving below the proficient level in that subgroup decreases by ten percent. Safe Harbor is calculated using the last two years of test administration data.
