MOUNT ZION HIGH SCHOOL 2535 Mt. Zion Parkway• Jonesboro, Georgia 30236• (770) 473-2940 Fax (770) 473-2784 C. Michael Houze Assistant Principal Brenda Ross Assistant Principal Monique R. Drewry Principal Sara Stephens Assistant Principal RE: Notice of AYP Status August 29, 2011 Dear Parents, The Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965 (ESEA) provides information to parents/guardians who have children attending schools identified as needing improvement to be notified of the school’s academic achievement. Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP) is one the cornerstones of ESEA which measures year-to year student achievement on statewide tests. Title I schools that do meet the State standard for AYP in the same subject for two or more consecutive years are placed on Needs Improvement (NI). Your child attends Mount Zion High School, which receives Federal Title I Funds to assist students in meeting state achievement standards. Your child’s school did not make Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP) for the 2010-2011 school year, resulting in Needs Improvement level 4 (NI-4) status under ESEA. As a result, Mount Zion High School continues to develop a plan for student achievement in accordance with ESEA, specifically addressing the reason why the school is identified as Needs Improvement. A critical portion of the success plan is parent participation and support; which, we would like your input. We hope that as a parent, you will become involved in our school’s improvement initiatives as we continue to monitor student achievement and set high expectations. Thank you for your continued support. Sincerely, Monique Drewry Principal Mount Zion High School The Mighty Mount: Excellence Without Excuses!
