Phenix City schools make AYP

All Phenix City schools made adequate yearly progress for the 2006-2007 school year.

Eighty-two percent of state schools made AYP this year, which is a measure of student performance set by the No Child Left Behind Act.

Two schools in Russell County — Russell County High and Russell County Middle — and Beauregard High in Lee County did not make AYP.

Russell County High School did not meet requirements for the reading portion of accountability standards. Russell County Middle did not meet requirements for reading or math.

This is the second year both the high school and the middle school in Russell County have not made AYP in these categories, putting them in school improvement. A school or system must make AYP for two consecutive years in the failing component to be taken out of school improvement.

Beauregard High School did not make AYP in the reading portion of the standards.
