Schools Meet Federal Standards


All of Rim Country’s schools have met federal standards set by No Child Left Behind except for Star Valley’s New Visions Academy, according to data released Wednesday by the Arizona Department of Education.

The benchmarks, known as Adequate Yearly Progress, are pass/fail measures that judge schools’ successes from the Arizona Instrument to Measure Standards test, attendance and graduation rates.

New Visions failed to meet the mandated graduation rate of 71 percent. The results characterize success from the 2007-2008 school year.

All Payson schools and the Pine Strawberry Elementary School passed, as did Payson Education Center. Globe Education Center did not.

The county superintendent of schools runs the Payson and Globe education centers.
