    1ABCs results for 1996-97, 1997-98, 1998-99, 1999-00, 2000-01, 2001-02, 2002-03, 2003-04, 2004-05, 2005-06, and 2006-07 reflect State Board of Education actions through October 2, 1997, October 1, 1998, October 7,

1999, October 5, 2000, November 1, 2001, October 3, 2002, September 10, 2003, October 6, 2004, November 3, 2005, November, 2006, and October 9, 2007, respectively.

2The first year of implementation of the ABCs was in 1996-97; only K-8 schools were included in the model.

3The ABCs high school model was first implemented in 1997-98.  (Schools whose grades spanned K-12 were included in statistical summaries for both K-8 and high schools, so there is duplication in these counts.)

4The comprehensive ABCs model has been applied since 1998-99; there is no duplication in these counts.

5Honor Schools of Excellence, approved by the SBE in 2003-04, refers to Schools of Excellence that met AYP.

6Beginning in 2002, Schools of Distinction were required to make at least expected growth for the first time.

7High Growth was referred to as Exemplary Growth prior to 2002.

8Schools Not Making Expected Growth was included in two categories prior to 2002:  Schools Receiving No Recognition and Low Performing Schools.

9Total ABCs Schools is the total number of schools participating in the ABCs for a given year; this total does not reflect the sum of the column; Schools of Excellence, Schools of Distinction, and Low-Performing Schools

are not exclusive categories and may include schools that appear in other categories.

10All totals for 2004-05 do not include grade 6 reading in growth calculations;  however, grade 6 reading is used in performance composite calculations.

11ABCs results for 2005-06 and 2006-07 are based on a revised accountability model and are not comparable to those from previous years.
