Growth Model: Middle School Extension

  • Students in middle school would be evaluated on whether they made sufficient growth to become proficient by the designated high school Regents examination.

  • The designated high school target is proficient on the Regents Examination in Integrated Algebra and proficient on the Regents Comprehensive Examination in English.

  • Students in middle school would have until the target assessment to be projected proficient; the number of years permitted would be based upon the grade the student entered middle school.

  • This middle school extension will only apply to schools (and their subgroups), not to district AYP decisions in instances where students transfer among schools within a district.
