Area Schools Fail to Make Progress Under No Child Left Behind

Alabama public school's Adequate Yearly Progress report cards came out Monday, as a state the performance rate is has climbed slightly.

83-percent of schools in the state reached all 100 goals required by the No Child Left Behind Act.

However, a number of high schools in the Wiregrass area fell into the 17-percent that have not reached AYP.

Those schools include Abbeville, Ariton, Carroll, Dale County, Daleville, Dothan, Elba, Enterprise, Geneva, G.W. Long, Headland, Houston County, Northview and Wicksburg.

This is the 4th year in a row that Dothan High School and Northview have failed to reach AYP goals.

If they do not meet AYP next year the state could replace school staff, remove principals' decision-making authority and take over the board of education.

    Fourth year in a row that both DHS and NHS have failed??? And why is the State waiting another year to step in and see what's lacking in the current system?? How bad does it have to get?

    You are quick to point out the schools that did not make AYP, but what about the schools that did make AYP. All of the Geneva County Schools( Hartford, Slocomb, and Samson) score well and made AYP.
