13 of 19 area school districts not making AYP


In results released this week by the Minnesota Department of Education, 13 of 19 area school districts were labeled as not making adequate yearly progress on standardized reading and math tests.

The state tests are part of the requirements of the No Child Left Behind federal education law. Schools are considered to not be making adequate yearly progress if their students do not reach state goals in the annual tests.
