The Accountability Status Reports for Verification include revised
2005-06 safe harbor targets. The 2005-06 safe harbor targets in the reports
distributed on November 14 were calculated incorrectly and, in the majority of
cases, were too low. As a result the adequate yearly progress (AYP) status of
some districts and schools that made AYP using the incorrect safe harbor targets
has changed. A list of other changes to these reports will be posted to this Web
site. Review reports carefully for changes.
An accountability group is said to have used safe harbor if its performance index is below its Effective Annual Measurable Objective and it made AYP by equaling or exceeding its safe harbor target and qualifying for safe harbor by making AYP in science. The document Frequently Asked Questions about the Accountability Verification Process provides information about the safe harbor targets.
