Adequate Yearly Progress

ALERT!: Due to the U.S. Department of Education’s recent approval of Washington State’s ESEA Flexibility Request, Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP) and AYP sanctions are no longer applicable. For updated accountability information, please go to the ESEA Flexibility Request (Waiver) Web site.

Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP) is one of the cornerstones of the federal Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) signed into law January 2002 as the No Child Left Behind (NCLB) Act. In the state of Washington, it is primarily a measure of year-to-year student achievement on the state assessment in reading and mathematics.
