Colchester Schools Make AYP

While nearly 72 percent of Vermont schools missed performance targets under the federal No Child Left Behind Act, Colchester High School has made AYP—or Adequate Yearly Progress—the only high school in Chittenden County to do so.

Porters Point School and Union Memorial School also made AYP.

AYP is a measurement defined by the No Child Left Behind Act allowing the Department of Education to assess the performance of public schools and school districts through the use of standardized testing.

Vermont schools’ AYP determinations are based upon assessments by the New England Common Assessment Program (NECAP) (www.ride.ri.gov/assessment/necap.aspx) and the Vermont Alternate Assessment Portfolio (education.vermont.gov/new/html/pgm_alternate.html).
