Three of Los Alamos Public Schools seven schools met Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP) for 2008. Barranca, Chamisa and Piñon elementary schools made AYP. Aspen and Mountain elementary schools, Los Alamos Middle School and Los Alamos High School did not.
The results are equally dismal across the state. Just 3 of Santa Fe’s 30 schools and 35 of Albuquerque’s 161 schools met AYP this year. In fact, just 245, or 31.8 percent, of the states 770 schools made AYP.
Education Secretary Veronica García of New Mexico’s Public Education Department announced the 2008 AYP and achievement gap results New Mexico schools during a press conference Friday afternoon.
“We’re not devastated by this,” LAPS Superintendent Mary McLeod said. “As Secretary García said, this is but a moment in time.”
McLeod said there was a period of time when the bar was set lower for special education students and their results were reflected separately from students in the general population. This year the bar was set the same for all students and the reason so many schools didn’t make AYP, she said.
