This article was originally published in The Notebook. In August 2020, The Notebook became Chalkbeat Philadelphia.

To the editors:

I had the good fortune of receiving a copy of your poster Making AYP: The Game. This publication is without a doubt the best overview of Adequate Yearly Progress requirements and implications for educators throughout Pennsylvania.

I believe this is a resource that needs to be provided for all teachers within the middle school of which I am principal. This overview will certainly help our teachers establish a clear focus and instructional goals to ensure success for all students.

Dr. Francis X. Antonelli, Principal
Heights Terrace Elementary/Middle School, Hazleton, PA

Editors’ note: “Making AYP: The Game,” which appeared in the Notebook‘s Winter 2004-05 edition, was a combined effort of the Notebook and Research for Action (RFA), as part of RFA’s Learning from Philadelphia’s School Reform Project. Copies of a free, glossy wall poster of the game produced by RFA can be obtained by visiting www.researchforaction.org, or writing Research for Action, 3701 Chestnut St., Philadelphia, PA 19104.
