What is AYP?
AYP, or Adequate Yearly Progress, is a key measurement of a school's progress based on standards developed through 2001's No Child Left Behind (NCLB) education reform act. In Utah, AYP is measured by performance on the Utah Performance and Assessment System (U-PASS), along with the percentage of students who participate in these state standardized tests, and academic performance.
How Does this Affect UTVA?
Under NCLB, schools who do not make AYP across multiple years could face a variety of actions, up to and including restructuring or closure. UTVA is proud to have met AYP for both the 2008-2009 and 2009-2010 school year and looks forward to continued success in the coming years.
We're proud of our school's performance. We firmly believe our continued success is a testament to the quality of our teaching staff, the strength of our school's culture and community, and the superior design and deliverability of the K12 curriculum. We look forward to continued success in the coming years, and hope that more families will continue to make UTVA the preferred method of education for Utah's students!

"I've really enjoyed my online school experience! I like that we can be flexible with our schedule when need be. The K12 curriculum is wonderful, especially the fact that there is constant reinforcement of the main points throughout each lesson. I can see both of my children growing and actually enjoying learning. Thank you for making this such an excellent option for us!"
