Schools make adequate yearly progress

Six schools with successful appeals met adequate yearly progress, raising the final total to 119 out of 283 or 42 percent.

Since the preliminary AYP results were announced on July 17, the following schools’ AYP status has changed from “not met” to “met:” Hanalei Elementary, Pearl Harbor Kai Elementary, Kalani High and Waialua Elementary. Both Kualapuu Elementary (charter) and Waimanalo Elementary and Intermediate also made AYP and exited sanctions entirely.

The final “No Child Left Behind” status for school year 2008 to ‘09 finds 158 schools in “Good Standing” (56 %), 22 in “School Improvement” (8 %), 8 in “Corrective Action” (3 %), 17 in “Planning for Restructuring” (6 %), and 78 in “Restructuring” (27 %).

Special congratulations to Kalani Complex (Kahala, Liholiho, Lili‘uokalani, Waikiki, and Wilson elementaries; Kaimuki Middle; and Kalani High), Kalaheo Complex (Aikahi, Kailua, Kainalu, and Mokapu elementaries; Kailua Intermediate; and Kalaheo High), and Waialua Complex (Hale‘iwa and Waialua elementaries; and Waialua High & Intermediate) for being the only three complexes in which every school achieved AYP.
