Note: The list of Title 1 schools and districts on improvement being given to media today cannot
be publicly released until the information has been presented to the State Board of Education.
Please do not publish any of the information in this release prior to that time.
Below is the list of Title 1 schools and districts identified as on improvement in Kansas. Each
school and district had opportunities to review their state assessment, attendance, and graduation
data; make corrections; and file an appeal if they disagreed with the AYP decision. Once a
school or district has been identified for improvement, it must make AYP for two consecutive
years to be off of improvement.
“Knowing that this is the fifth year for districts and schools to meet increasingly higher academic
achievement targets, the number of schools and districts that continue to meet or exceed
expectations (95% for both reading and mathematics) is phenomenal. While there are Title 1
schools that have not met the targets, these schools have worked tirelessly to ensure continued
progress for their students. Technical support will be provided to schools on improvement
throughout the coming year,” according to Alexa Posny, commissioner of education.
Questions which may arise while assimilating this data:
How does a school get the Title 1 designation?
Title 1 requires districts to rank order all schools by the percent of poverty to determine
which schools are eligible for Title 1 funds. This means that the local district prioritizes
its list, generally based on the percentage of students eligible for free and reduced lunch.
Title 1 funds are then allocated to the higher poverty schools, which designates them as
Title 1 schools.
How is a school or district identified for improvement?
The No Child Left Behind legislation requires Title 1 schools or districts that do not
make adequate yearly progress (AYP) for two consecutive years to be identified for
120 SE 10th Avenue Topeka KS 66612-1182
improvement. Identification is to occur prior to the beginning of the school year so that
parents may make informed decisions regarding their children’s schools.
What percentages of Title 1 schools or districts have been identified as on improvement?
Kansas had 296 school districts in 2006-07 eligible for Title 1 funds. Only 5% (16
districts) have been identified as on improvement for the 2007-08 school year.
There were 691 Title 1 schools in Kansas for the 2006-07 school year. Ninety-five
percent of these schools made AYP, with 5% (thirty-five schools) identified as on
improvement for the 2007-08 school year.
How will we know which subgroups in a school or district were identified as not making
AYP?
This information is not available for publication at this time. When the report card is
presented to the State Board in October, this information will be available.
How can a district be on improvement and yet have no identified schools on improvement?
The minimum size of a subgroup (e.g., ethnicity, income level, special needs or English
proficiency) must be 30 students. In many small schools, a subgroup of this size is not
possible. However, at the district level, the aggregate number may be at or above 30 and
must be calculated according to the No Child Left Behind legislation.
What were the targets for the 2006-07 testing cycle?
The 2006-07 AYP mathematics targets were 66.8% for K-8 and 55.7% for 9-12.
The 2006-07 AYP reading targets were 69.5% for K-8 and 65.0% for 9-12.

Title I Schools and Districts
Identified for Improvement for 2007-2008
No Child Left Behind requires Title I schools and districts that do not make adequate yearly progress
(AYP) for two consecutive years be identified for improvement. The identification is to occur prior to the
beginning of the school year so that parents may make informed decisions regarding their children’s
schools. Each school and district had opportunities to review their state assessment, attendance and
graduation data; make corrections; and file an appeal if they disagreed with the AYP decision. Once a
school or district is identified for improvement, it must make AYP for two consecutive years to be off of
improvement.

Six schools in Kansas City that were on improvement in 2006-2007 are not included in the 2007-2008 list
as they are no longer Title I schools. They would be on the list if they were still Title I schools.
In February 2007, the Kansas City school district notified the Kansas State Department of Education Title
I office that it was changing the low-income data used to determine which schools are Title I schools.
Previously, Kansas City used both free and reduced lunch data to determine the percent of poverty. In
2007-2008, the district will only use free lunch data. Title I requires districts to rank order all schools by
the percent of poverty to determine which schools are eligible for Title I. As a result of decreasing Title I
allocations, the district will serve all schools with a free lunch percentage of 75% or higher and additional

elementary schools with 69% or higher poverty. Twenty-one schools will be Title I schools in 2007-2008.
*Central Middle School was previously on the list for mathematics. They are off improvement for
mathematics; however, this is the first year for improvement in reading.
Following are the School Sanctions by Improvement Status Year:
Year 1 Choice
Year 2 Choice and Supplemental Educational Services (SES)
Year 3 Choice, SES and Corrective Action
Year 4 Choice, SES, Continue Corrective Action, and Plan to Restructure
Year 5 Choice, SES, Implement Restructuring Plan
Schools and districts that are on improvement may delay moving to the next level of sanction when they
make AYP one year. For example, a school in its second year of improvement must offer choice but
could delay supplemental educational services since it made AYP during the last testing cycle.
If you have questions about the data, please contact Karla S. Denny, director of communications,
Kansas State Department of Education. Phone: (785) 296-4876. Email: [email protected]
