East Peoria Community High School District #309 makes Adequate Yearly Progress for 2003-2004
State Board of Education announces results of district’s appeal

Springfield, Ill. –The Illinois State Board of Education (ISBE) has announced that East Peoria Community High School District #309 in East Peoria made Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP) in 2003-2004, meeting all the assessment and accountability requirements under the federal No Child Left Behind law. East Peoria Community High School District #309 was initially labeled as not making AYP in ISBE’s December 2004 announcement of Illinois’ 2003-2004 district and school results.

Upon the district’s appeal and ISBE staff’s review of the district’s data, discrepancies in East Peoria Community High School District #309 data were corrected. After these corrections, ISBE has found that the district made AYP in 2003-2004.

The district’s successful appeal is extremely important, as AYP is the critical measure of success under the federal No Child Left Behind law.
