WFISD Struggles to Meet Standards

The Wichita Falls Independent School District is below average for this years No Child Left Behind federal requirements.

Data released by the Texas Education Agency shows increased No Child Left Behind "Adequate Yearly Progress" standards has some district schools making great gains and "Met AYP" while other campuses, and the district itself, fell short of the federal standard. For the state, 44% of all Texas schools Met AYP and 37% of WFISD schools Met AYP.  Across the state, 72% of all school districts Did Not Meet AYP. The No Child Left Behind standards, now requiring a passing rate of 87% in reading and 83% in math or meet Safe Harbor (an improvement of 50% from previous year), will require all schools across the country to meet 100% passing rates in both reading and math in 2014.

Adequate Yearly Progress is a part of the No Child Left Behind Federal Law. All districts and campuses that receive Title federal monies are subject to Adequate Yearly Progress as outlined by the federal legislation.

*Rider does not receive Title 1 federal funds therefore is not subject to AYP Stage I sanctions. A school must have 35% or more students who qualify for free/reduced lunch to qualify for federal Title funds, Rider has 32%.

** Even though WFHS met "Adequate Yearly Progress" this year, NCLB requires that a school meet AYP for two consecutive years in order to be removed from Stage 3 status.
