New York State: Local Initiatives

  • A number of NYS districts have developed local growth and value-added models. The two most prominent are:

    • NYC’s Progress Report initiative.

    • Capital Region BOCES initiative.

  • These initiatives are neither endorsed by SED nor require SED’s endorsement.

  • These initiatives are not constrained by USED’s growth model guidelines and were not designed for use in making AYP decisions.

  • These models can inform the development of State growth and/or value-added models for which USED’s permission is not required.
