Implications of the Proposed Revised AMAO 1 Targets (Cont.)

  • The ending target, or 65th percentile, for 2016-17 also means that all Title III LEAs must perform at the same level as the top 35 percent of the LEAs performed in 2006-07.

  • As the AMAO 1 target increases by one percentage point each year, all LEAs are expected to increase the number and percent of ELLs making AMAO 1 each year. Without making the expected annual improvement, only 33 percent of the Title III LEAs would meet the AMAO 1 target by 2016-17.
