New Jersey schools are holding fairly steady in meeting federal guidelines in standardized test scores, the state Department of Education announced today.

Almost 71 percent of the 2,210 New Jersey schools in which tests were administered this spring met the so-called Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP)standards. That number is down slightly from the 73 percent last year but up considerably from the 62 percent in the prior year, the state said.  The tests are mandated by the federal No Child Left Behind Act (NCLB).

The department also released the statewide list of schools making AYP, the list of Schools In Need of Improvement and their yearly status and detailed historical data on all schools.
