So did the County school systems of Fulton, Cobb, Gwinnett, Hall, Clayton, Douglas and Fayette but the City School Systems of Decatur and Marietta did make Adequate Yearly Progress.
As far as the Dunwoody schools are concerned, all the elementary schools were deemed adequate but both Peachtree Charter Middle School and Dunwoody High School failed to make the cut as to being successful schools under these same measurements. Click the links above for the individual school results.
I am not an expert as to the No Child Left Behind legislation nor what these results actually mean for our children going to these schools but on the surface it isn't good. Seeing that 71% of DeKalb high schools, 55% of our middle schools and 14% of the DeKalb elementary schools failed to make AYP; I would believe that someone has some explaining to do though the DeKalb County press release states that these numbers are improvements over last year.
As usual, I recommend the DeKalb County School Watch Blog for more in depth coverage of this subject but if anyone has insight as to what these test results mean for Dunwoody, please enlighten me and everyone else in the comments.
State Wide Results by District & School
What is Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP)?
Adequate yearly progress (AYP) is a series of annual performance goals set by the state for each school district and school as well as for the state as a whole. By participating in Title I, a voluntary federal program that provides more than $11 billion to participating states to help educate low-income children, states agree to commit themselves to the goal of the federal No Child Left Behind Act: that all students will be proficient in Reading/English Language Arts and Mathematics, as determined by state assessments, by 2014.
