Kentucky's No Child Left Behind Test Results Released

The Kentucky Department of Education has released its list of which schools made the grade last school year.

Officials say 70.9% of Kentucky schools made adequate yearly progress in the 2007-08 school year, down from the 78.7% of schools which made progress in the prior school year.

However, education department officials say a rise in reading and mathematics goals likely contributed to a lower percentage of schools making progress.

Other highlights of the No Child Left Behind report released by the Kentucky Department of Education include:

- 89.0% of elementary schools, 44.4% of middle schools and 33.3% of high schools in Kentucky met all their No Child Left Behind goals.

- 103 of 175 school districts (58.9%) in Kentucky met 100% of their No Child Left Behind Adequate Yearly Progress goals.

- Of the 337 schools (29.1%) in Kentucky that did not make Adequate Yearly Progress, 212 of these schools made 80% or more of their goals (122 of these schools met at least 90% or more of their goals). Overall, 1,032 schools in the state (89.2%) met 80% or more of their goals.
