Eastern Washtenaw Multicultural Academy did not meet AYP standards due to not testing 95 percent of the school's economically disadvantaged students in reading, according to state information. Schools must test 95 percent of students in a number of different, federally mandated categories in order to meet AYP.

Adequate Yearly Progress is a measurement used by the federal government through No Child Left Behind to determine how a school is performing on an annual basis.

Ann Arbor Learning Community, South Arbor Charter Academy, Fortis Academy, Honey Creek Community School and Washtenaw Technical Middle College were the five charter schools that received an "A" grade from the state, in addition to meeting AYP standards.
