One Janesville school falls short on adequate yearly progress
The Department fo Public Instruction's annual review of school proress found 148 schools, including one in Janesville, and four entire districts, including Beloit, missing one or more adequate yearly progress targets.
The target is set through the Wisconsin Knowledge and Concepts Exam and the Federal No Child Left Behind Act. In Janesville, both Parker High School and Edison Middle School improved in the areas of reading with their students with disabilites to come off the watch list. Franklin Middle School students with disabilities in the area of reading resulted in the school being added to the list.
No sanctions go into effect unless schools or districts miss the same annual measuaurable objectives for the same group in two or more consecutirve years.
