What does it mean for me as a new teacher if a school is on Year 2 of not meeting AYP for 2008-2009? I was offered a self-contained special education teaching job so our test standards will be modified, but I'm still concerned about job security. I know if a school has 2 full years of not meeting AYP, parents have to be notified and have a choice whether or not to ask for their child to be transferred into a different school (district pays for it). At Year 6, they will become a public charter school and restaffing would be done (for those who were accountable for the lack of progress). Is this something I need to be concerned about? I know the firing and rehiring of staff doesn't happen until Year 6 of not meeting AYP. I do have another job offer in the works with a different county that has consecutively made AYP every year. Would this be a big enough reason for you to choose another job offer? Thanks.
