Adequate Yearly Progress

Adequate Yearly Progress is a measurement tool that is part of the federal No Child Left Behind Act. AYP is an annual measure of student achievement on state tests in reading and math. The original goal of this legislation was for all students to reach proficiency in both subjects by 2014.

School districts that do not meet AYP are required to "set aside" 20 percent of their Title I funds they may receive from the federal government. This money must be reserved either for private vendors to provide tutoring or to bus students who want to transfer to a school that did not fail to meet AYP. Money that goes unused for these purposes is returned to the district, but not until the school year is well underway and too late to be included in that year's operating budget.

This webpage provides information about Tahoma School District's AYP status.

School specific AYP reports may be obtained from the school or on the Washington State Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction (OSPI) State Report Card Web page at
