School Improvement

Virginia, under the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965 (ESEA) flexibility waiver granted on June 29, 2012, has established annual measurable objectives (AMOs) designed to reduce proficiency gaps between high- and low-performing schools within six years.
Per the provisions of the ESEA flexibility waiver, schools that do not meet the AMOs for subgroups must develop and implement improvement plans.
The flexibility waiver provisions specify different requirements for Title I and non-Title I schools with subgroups not meeting AMOs. Below is information about the requirements and support that will be provided by the Virginia Department of Education (VDOE) for Title I schools (neither focus nor priority).
