7 Points (Improvement Target for Cycle II)
=Determining Your Improvement Target for Cycle II
Target to be achieved is a two year average. If you improved by 7 points in 2001 you had to sustain that improvement in 2002. If you improved by less than 7 points in 2001, you had to increase by more than 7 in the second year to have an average gain of 7 points over the two year cycle.
Baseline PI of 51.0
Improvement Target is 7.0 points
Above Target Target +2.6 < points
On Target Target +/- 2.5 points
Improved Below Target Below On Target
Above No Change
No Change Baseline +/- 2.5 points
Declined Baseline -2.6 < points

AYP is determined separately for ELA and mathematics.
A school is considered to have made AYP for the two years covered by Cycle II if:
