AYP: Mountain View Elem-entary School did not meet adequate yearly progress in 2002-03. While 79 percent of the overall student population passed language arts tests, and 76 percent passed math, passing percentages for students with disabilities were significantly lower (35 percent, language arts and 39 percent math).
In 2003-04, the school made AYP with 85 percent of students proficient in language arts and 78 percent proficient in math. In the students with disabilities subgroup, proficiency rates were still a bit low, but math scores came in within the statistical margin of error and the subgroup showed enough improvement in language arts for the school to meet Safe Harbor requirements.
