How will I be notified if my child is taught by a
teacher who is not Highly-Qualified?
  • Currently, we are hiring one math and one science
  • We have one retired ARMS teacher serving sixth
    grade science (interim)

Common Core and NC
  • North Carolina is in the first group of states to
    embrace clear and consistent goals for learning
    to prepare children for success in college and
  • The full Common Core standards can be viewed at
  • North Carolina's Standard Course of Study has
    been completely overhauled and new standards are
    fully implemented.
  • ARMS is currently fully implementing the CCSS and
    continues to provide professional development for
    our teachers to increase complexity.

AMOs (Annual Measurable Objectives)
  • The ESEA waiver specified AMO targets will be
    used for reporting. These targets are
  • (1) based on 2010-11 data and
  • (2) identified for each federally reported
  • Per the flexibility waiver, the AMO targets were
    set with the goal of reducing the percentage of
    non-proficient students by one-half within six
  • Annual Measureable Objectives (AMO) replace
    Annual Yearly Progress (AYP) targets and
    eliminate school improvement designations for
    Title I schools.
  • The change from AYP targets to Annual Measurement
    Objectives (AMO) acknowledges that subgroups have
    different starting points and thus need different
    targets.  Overall, there are thirteen specific
    areas of flexibility included in the waiver. All
    schools are measured according to AMO.

AMO measures the progress of student groups
  • Definition of AMOs
  • Annual Measureable Objectives (AMOs) is defined
    as a series of performance targets that states,
    school districts, and specific subgroups within
    their schools must achieve each year to meet the
    requirements of ESEA. In each public school and
    Local Education Agency(LEA) in North Carolina,
    the eleven student subgroups are
  • 1. School as a whole (all students)
  • 2. American Indian
  • 3. Asian
  • 4. Black
  • 5. Hispanic
  • 6. Two or More Races
  • 7. White
  • 8. Economically Disadvantaged Students (Based on
    Child Nutrition data files submitted in
    accordance with a Memorandum of Agreement)
  • 9. Limited English Proficient (LEP) and,
  • 10. Students with Disabilities (SWD)
  • 11. AIG- Academic Intelligence- Gifted

ESEA Flexibility Waiver New School Designations
  • In addition, as part of the ESEA flexibility
    waiver, Priority, Focus, and Reward Schools,
    based on 2010-11 data, have been identified.
  • The Priority and Focus lists will remain for
    three years (ending in 2014-15).
  • The NCDPI Title I office will follow-up with
    school districts regarding any Priority or Focus
    Schools in their districts with more information
    on assistance and resources.

Focus School Methodology
  • Title I schools that have the largest
    within-school gaps between the highest-achieving
    subgroup and lowest-achieving subgroup or, at
    high school level, has the largest within-school
    gaps in the graduation rate
  • Title I schools with proficiency score-R/M with
    a subgroup with proficiency score below 50 in
    the previous and one of the two prior years
