Talladega City School System Makes AYP!!!

Our accountability scores have been released to the public, and they show that the Talladega City School System made AYP! Here is how we did it:

Elementary grade span (grades K-5)-Scored a "Yes" for reading, scored a "Yes" for math, and scored a "Yes" for having at least 95% average daily attendance for the first 40 days of school. That alone would have done it!

We went a step further:

Middle grade span (grades 6-8)-Scored a "Yes" for reading, scored a "Yes" for math, and scored a "Yes" for having at least 95% average daily attendance for the first 40 days of school. That alone would have done it! One grade span getting a "Yes, Yes, Yes" gives a school system AYP. We had two grade spans to accomplish this task!

Looking at each of our schools:

All elementary schools
made AYP.

Ellis
scored a "Yes" on all performance goals, showed enough improvement in average daily attendance for the first 40 days to receive a "Yes," but received a "No" for two subgroups in participation. The requirement is 95%, and we got 94%.

THS
improved their scores on all performance goals but had two subgroups with a 94% in participation. Had those two sores of "94%" been "95%" instead, and had the dropout shown any decrease, THS would have made AYP.

Having all of our schools achieve AYP is something that is within our grasp!
