Final 2004 Report on Adequate Yearly Progress


The vast majority of Montgomery County public schools made sufficient progress on state testing and accountability standards in 2004 to comply with the adequate yearly progress (AYP) requirements under the No Child Left Behind (NCLB) Act of 2001. Information released by the Maryland State Department of Education (MSDE) in October 2004 shows that 90% of the 190 schools in the Montgomery County Public Schools (MCPS) made AYP, up from 75% in 2003 when the NCLB testing and accountability system began. This includes 119 of 125 elementary schools, 28 of 37 middle schools, 19 of 24 high schools, and 5 of 6 special schools.
