Virginia Title I Schools
Virginia Title I Schools:
School Improvement Status
The commonwealth of Virginia sets high standards for learning and achievement. These standards include annual measurable objectives in reading and mathematics adopted by the Board of Education in compliance with the federal Elementary and Secondary Education Act (also known as No Child Left Behind). Schools that meet or exceed these objectives, as well as requirements for participation in testing, and attendance (elementary and middle schools) or graduation (high schools) are considered to have made adequate yearly progress (AYP).
Under the law, Title I schools (schools that receive federal funds under Title I of ESEA) that do not make AYP in the same subject area for two consecutive years are identified for Title I School Improvement.
