Schools that don't meet testing standards two years in a row must give parents the option to move their child to a school that does. Today, state education officials will finalize the Adequate Yearly Progress test results, which allows the school switching process to get started.
Adequate Yearly Progress, or AYP, measures the yearly progress of different groups of students at the school, district, and state levels against a yearly target in reading and math. It's part of the No Child Left Behind Act.
If school doesn't meet the testing benchmarks two years in a row, parents have the option to transfer their child from that school to one that is meeting AYP standards.
