NCLB: Program Improvement



What is Program Improvement (PI)?

NCLB requires the state and district to review annually the academic progress of federally funded Title I schools and to identify schools in need of improvement. These schools are identified as PI schools after two consecutive years of not making adequate yearly progress (AYP). California determines AYP by considering the following four measures:

  • The percentage of students scoring at the “proficient” or “advanced” level on the California Standards Tests for English-language arts and mathematics
  •  The percentage of students participating in those tests
  •  The graduation rate for high schools
  •  California’s own accountability measurement of progress, the Academic Performance Index (API)


Why is a school identified as PI?

The reason a school continues in PI is because it did not achieve AYP in 2011-12. The AYP area(s) that may cause the identification are:

  • English-language arts
  • Mathematics
  • Test Participation Rate
  • Graduation Rate
  • Academic Performance Index

The school’s 2011-12 Accountability Progress Report may be obtained from the school or on the California Department of Education (CDE) AYP Web page at http://www.cde.ca.gov/ta/ac/ay/.


Public school choice: What right does a parent have to request a transfer to a school that is not in PI?

All parents/guardians of students attending a PI school have the right to request a transfer of their child(ren) to a non-PI district school with district-paid transportation.

For parents who select this option, the district will provide transportation to the non-PI school for as long as the home school continues to be identified as a PI school. If the home school exits PI by making AYP for two consecutive years, the student can remain at the school; however, transportation will no longer be district-paid. If the demand for choice exceeds funds available, priority will be given to lowest achieving, low-income students.

If you are interested in transferring your child(ren) to a non-PI school in the district for the 2012-2013 school year, a list of non-PI schools available for transfer (as long as space allows) is below.  Your preference of a non-PI school will be taken into consideration.
