October has gotten off to a good start in the Pittsburgh Public Schools.
Today Superintendent Linda S. Lane announced that the Pittsburgh Public Schools had made Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP) for the second time in three years. Making AYP is a particularly challenging feat for large urban districts because of the greater number of targets that must be met.
Today’s announcement marks the second time the District has achieved AYP in the nine years school districts have been held accountable to do so since NCLB was signed into law January 2002. By achieving AYP the District moves into “Making Progress” status by meeting state and federal targets set under NCLB. “Making Progress” status means that the District met all targets on each of the three standards – high school graduation, test participation and academic performance.
