WAYNESBORO, Pa. -- The Waynesboro Area School District met 2007-08's "adequate yearly progress" standards set forth by the Pennsylvania Department of Education, the district's interim superintendent announced this week.
Gloria Walker praised the administration and staff for their efforts.
"They truly did a commendable job this year with the students to increase student achievement," said Walker, who received the preliminary data July 1.
The district's graduation rate, which caused problems with AYP in the past, was at 90.5 percent and within acceptable rates, Walker said.
Much of AYP - a requirement of the federal No Child Left Behind Act - comes from student performance on the Pennsylvania System of School Assessment tests.
