LEA Improvement Status of Warning

Posted: 2-13-14

Dear Parent/Guardian:

The No Child Left Behind (NCLB) Act, Title III, Section 3122 (a) (1), (2), (3), requires that Whiteriver Unified School District which receives Title III funding be held accountable for meeting the Annual Measurable Achievement Objectives (AMAOs) under subsection (a) of the law.

The Office of English Language Association Services (OELAS) of the Arizona Department of Education (ADE) has monitored the progress of Whiteriver Unified School District toward meeting the AMAOs for our English language learners (ELL).

OLEAS has determined, by reviewing our ELLs reclassification rates for the year 2012-2013, that our District did not meet the AMAO "reclassification".

Reclassification, simply put, means the percent of students moving from limited English to proficient in English. The reclassification rate required by the State statute is 23%. The District as a whole did not meet the 23% level. Therefore, the District received a formal notice of Warning.

On a more positive note the District did meet the Annual Yearly Performance (AYP-AMAO) and the Progress (AMAO) for our ELL students.

Should you have any questions please call JenniferPlath, 358-5800, ext. 5728.
