Constraints

  • Using growth in AYP is highly constrained:

    • Focused on reaching proficiency and reducing the achievement gap

    • Specifics dictated by USED

    • Proposal must be submitted by Oct. 15 to USED; if approved, would apply to 2008-09 data

  • Using growth outside of AYP is less constrained, but there is less agreement on approaches:
    • NYSED will work with partners to create this growth proposal

    • Regents would like proposal by end of this school year
