Appendix A
District Report Card for 2003-2004

4520 Canton

The No Child Left Behind Act of 2001 (NCLB) requires district report cards containing certain
information. The required information falls into three general areas: school improvement, teacher
qualifications and test data. A school that fails to make adequate yearly progress in achievement must
be identified for school improvement. The report must contain information about the professional
qualifications of teachers in core academic subject areas (English, reading, language arts, science,
mathematics, foreign languages, civics and government, arts, history, and geography). Highly qualified
teachers are those who satisfied the NCLB criteria during the 2003-2004 school year. The report must
also contain achievement data for specific subgroups, two-year trends, and student participation rates.

2004 Accountability Results:

Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP) Model Results as Mandated by NCLB 2001
The AYP determinations for the district are listed first, followed by those for the NCLB subgroups.
Note: Other academic indicator--a 2003 graduation rate of 72% (or an increase from 2002) AND an average
attendance rate of 93% (or an increase over 2002/2003)--applies only at the overall district level.

 4 schools in this district (100% of  4 schools) are in school improvement
  (004) Canton Elementary  (Improvement Year 1)
  (008) Canton Public High  (Improvement Year 1)
  (012) McNeal Elementary  (Improvement Year 1)
  (016) Nichols Middle Sch  (Improvement Year 1)
This district is in improvement (Year 1).

Teacher quality information from the 2003/2004 school year:
Note: Values are based on the NCLB definition of a highly qualified teacher.
 98.7% of the   538 NCLB core academic classes were taught by a highly qualified teacher.
 97.4% of NCLB core academic subject teachers (based on   163 FTEs) were highly qualified.

The graduation rate is calculated by dividing the number of graduates for school year 2002/2003 by the
number of ninth grade students four years earlier.  The adjusted ninth grade enrollment reflects the
number of new students entering the district, the number moving out, and the number failing over the
four year period.

The 2003 graduation rate is  62.1% for this district, based on 9th grade adjusted enrollment of   219.

District Level Test Data (Overall and Disaggregated by Subgroup)

Tests: MCT=Mississippi Curriculum Test, WRIT=Writing Assessment, SATP=Subject Area Testing Program,
NRT=Norm Referenced Assessment (Terra Nova), ALT=Alternate Assessment.

The 2003/2004 test participation rates above are calculated separately for reading/language arts (R/LA)
and mathematics (MATH).  They are based on students enrolled in grades 3-8, students with disabilities
coded as ungraded who were the same age as students in those grades, and students enrolled in English II
or Algebra I during the school year.  All students who took an MCT at grade level or at instructional
level, an alternate assessment, an English II test, or an Algebra I test were counted as tested.
A participation rate is shown if the number of students in the subgroup is 40 or greater.

The assessment results in this report will differ slightly from those posted in the Test Data retrieval
System, the accountability reports, and the hard copy assessment reports provided by the test vendors.
