Rationale for Revising Title III AMAOs

  • The current AMAO targets and increments were established in 2003 on estimated projections; longitudinal empirical data were not then available.

  • The current AMAO targets and annual increments were set with the assumption that 100 percent of LEP/ELLs must meet the AMAO 1 and AMAO 2 targets by 2013-14 as per Title I accountability requirements.
