Welcome to Howard Roosa Elementary School!
The Evansville Vanderburgh School Corporation has made Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP) as an entire school district for the first time since the inception of the federal No Child Left Behind Act of 2001 and the inception of Indiana's ISTEP+ testing.
AYP requires that schools demonstrate that the overall student population and any demographic group within each school (that includes 30 or more students) show that adequate yearly progress is being made by meeting the annual target or by reducing the percentage of students not passing these tests by at least 10 percent annually. Schools must assess at least 95 percent of students and meet annual goals in attendance or graduation rates, as well. This year's AYP results are based on the Spring 2010 ISTEP+ Scores.
