What happens if my school does not make AYP?

Title I schools that do not make AYP for two consecutive years are identified as a School In Need of Improvement.

In year one of School Improvement, the school must develop an improvement plan and offer school choice.

In year two, the school must offer Supplemental Educational Services (SES) in addition to school choice.

In year three, the school district must implement one or more of a list of corrective actions. A restructuring plan is developed when the school or district has not made AYP for a total of 5 consecutive years.
