Safe HarborA Method of Calculating AYP

• OBJECTIVES
• Discuss the procedures for SAFE HARBOR
• Estimate Safe Harbor and AMO Targets

October 15, 2008

Information for this presentation are adapted from CDDRE (2008) handouts.

Title I 2008

Critical Numbers*

* Details to make better decisions about targeting students, school grades, AYP and student learning.

Look at handout: 2007-2008 Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP) Report – Page 2

Source: 2007 Guide to Calculating Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP), TAC 2007

Flow Chart of Qualifying for Safe Harbor
• WRITING 90, +1
• 90% to 100% or
• 1% growth (0% to 89%)

NO

STEP 1

• 95% participation rate in each subgroup and whole school
• Graduation rate: 1% improvement or 85% or higher
• School grade not D or F

Did not make AYP

YES

STEP 2

• SUBGROUPS 1+8, 30/99/15
• 100 or more students, OR
• 15% of total tested if 30-99
• NOT less than 30

NO

YES

STEP 3

Made AYP

% scoring below proficient decreased by 10%

Example 3: 10% Decrease
• Does 80% to 73% represent a 10% reduction?
• YES
• NO

80 * .10 = 8.1

80 – 8.1 = 71.9

How can a school use safe harbor information?
• Set targets for subgroups not making AYP
• Help to close the achievement gap by targeting groups to ensure that each subgroup continues to make adequate yearly progress.
• Need 15 students in Writing to be able to use safe harbor (90+% )
• Identify students (use information from Survey 2) to determine which students will be included in calculations.
Example 4: Reading - Qualifying for Safe Harbor
• Did this school make AYP?
• Did it meet the Writing criteria of 90% or +1? (Did it meet the graduation criteria of 1% or 85%)
• Which subgroup(s) did not make AYP?
• Does the subgroup(s) meet the 30/99/15 requirement?
• Did the subgroup(s) decrease the non-proficient group by 10%
Qualifying for Safe Harbor
• Meet AYP in Writing
• 95% participation rate in each subgroup and whole school
• School has met the graduation rate criterion.
• School is not “D” or “F”

SAFE HARBOR requires a 10% reduction in the number of students who were non-proficient in the previous year.
