Linden City Schools and Marengo County AYP resultsBy Brittney Knox Published 5:03pm Thursday, August 9, 2012
Linden City Schools made Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP) this year.
Linden Elementary School made AYP this year and are currently in a one year delay to come out of school improvement. G. P. Austin Jr. High School met their goals for AYP this year. Linden High School did not make AYP this year in reading, but they are not in school improvement. A school has to not make AYP for two consecutive years to enter school improvement.
“We plan to purchase some recommended programs to aid the high school with their reading scores,” said Iris Richardson, student assessment coordinator for Linden City Schools.
George Baldwin, interim superintendent for Linden city schools, said he was proud of how the schools did in AYP this year.
“We plan to address the reading problem with the high school and continue to move forward,” he said.
The Marengo County school system made Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP) this year.
Amelia Love Johnson High School and Sweet Water High School made AYP this year.
John Essex High school made AYP this year, but they are still in school improvement.
“John Essex is definitely making great strides to coming out of school improvement,” said testing coordinator for Marengo County Kathy Pritchett.
Marengo High school did not make AYP this year in reading.
Pritchett said Marengo High made improvements this year, but they were not enough to make AYP. She said they will continue to work with the school, but they are “definitely getting on the right track” by meeting 10 out of 13 goals.
