For 2010-2011, Phoenix Alternative High School did not make Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP) because we did not test 95% of our students, we did not attain target achievement goals in English language arts or mathematics, and we did not meet the 80% graduation rate goal. Because our school has not made AYP for three years, we are identified for corrective action. We have established building-wide reading, writing, note taking and thinking strategies to engage our faculty and staff as well as our students in the entire teaching and learning process. We’ve also engaged ourselves in embedded relevant professional development to assist us in becoming more proficient and focused on what it takes to help our students to achieve. Parents and family members can get involved by reading with your children, encouraging them to complete their homework nightly, come to parent-teacher conferences, and encourage your student to attend school daily.
