In accordance with the No Child Left Behind (NCLB) legislation, Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP) must be determined for each public school and charter school in the State. To meet this requirement of NCLB, Commissioner’s Regulations Part 100.18 requires that a self-assessment be conducted in those schools for which decisions regarding AYP cannot be made based upon students’ participation in State assessments.
Questions about this requirement may be directed to Paulette Coppin at (718) 722-4553.
Section 2: Accountability system for schools with alternative cohort
Commissioner’s Regulations 100.18 allows schools in which more than half the students enrolled have previously been enrolled in another high school or in which more than half the enrollment is receiving special education services to voluntarily submit the performance of an alternative high school cohort.Alternate cohort Memo (44 KB)
