Annual Education Report

The Annual Education (AER) is designed to meet the federal requirements of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 2001 (also known as NCLB) for an annual report. The report provides detailed data on state administered student assessment results, accountability results, teacher qualification information, and the state results for the National Asessment of Educational Progress (NAEP). There is an AER for the state, each LEA, and each school, populated with the appropriate information.  If used as designed, the AER reports and cover letters also meet the state requirement for reporting to parents and communities in an annual education report.

The AER letter templates are available in

Local Education Agencies (LEAs) and schools must post and make copies available 15 days before school starts but no sooner than the public release of accountability results. Providing this information at least 15 days before school starts allows parents to make a better choice about which school to select for their child. This information should remain available on the website(s) for one year, until the next year’s report is prepared.
