Addressing concerns regarding the performance of students who fall in the Free and Reduced Lunch sub-category of students remains a top priority for our students to make adequate yearly progress (AYP). 2008 saw the largest number of families needing assistance. After some decline, 2012 saw numbers begin to rise again. ACS acknowledges the necessity of doing more to assist these students in achieving and maintaining academic grade level expectations.
