Federal regulations under the No Child Left Behind Act (NCLB) (you can read our two-part primer about NCLB here) require school districts and supervisory unions to notify parents when any of their schools have been identified for not meeting the requirements for student performance. Accordingly, we inform you that Malletts Bay School, Colchester Middle School, and Colchester High School have been identified in one or more subgroups for not making the necessary progress, or Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP), in reading and/or math.
Accordingly, a plan for improvement in each school that is unique, represents fundamental reform, and raises student achievement is being developed.
It is important to note that 73 percent of schools in Vermont did not make AYP this year. In fact, based upon NECAP results and local data, many of our schools exceed the state average in reading, math, writing, and science as well as those of other schools in Chittenden County.

If you have any questions regarding the status of our schools or the process for improvement, please contact Superintendent Waters at (802) 264-5999, or contact the building principals.
