Full Academic Year (FAY)
Some measures require all students to be included in the calculation whereas others hold schools accountable only for those in attendance for a full academic year.
For any student whose prior year end of year code indicates they are eligible to persist (e.g. Graduates and Completers are not eligible), the student counts as a persistent student if he/she enrolls in ANY Arizona public school prior to or on October 1st. Students who enroll are divided by the number of students who were eligible to enroll according to their last school.
Letter Grades for Schools (9)
Yes. All Arizona public schools, both charter and district, receive letter grades.
The letter grading process for multi-site LEAs is described here.
Science tests will not be included in the accountability system until fiscal year 2015. Please participate in our forums, town halls, committees, etc. in order to voice input on the integration or operationalization within our system.
