(a) Except as provided in (c) of this section, for purposes of demonstrating adequate yearly progress as required in 4 AAC 06.805, other academic indicators consist of the
(1) graduation rate as determined under 4 AAC 06.895(i) , if a student attends a school that enrolls students in grade 12; and
(2) average daily attendance rate as determined under 4 AAC 06.895(i) , if a student attends a school that does not enroll students in grade 12.
(b) A school, a district, or the state public school system satisfies the requirements for other academic indicators if it
(1) demonstrates improvement from the previous year on its other academic indicator under (a) of this section; or
(2) meets or exceeds
(A) a graduation rate of 55.58 percent; or
(B) an average daily attendance rate of 85 percent.
(c) A district may petition to have the graduation rate for a school calculated under an alternate graduation rate methodology if a school in the district with 40 or fewer students does not meet the requirements of adequate yearly progress under 4 AAC 06.805 only because of failure to meet the graduation rate required under this section. The petition must be filed within 20 days after receipt of the preliminary designation under 4 AAC 06.875. The department will grant the petition if the department determines that the alternate graduation rate methodology demonstrates that the school's retention and education of students will result in an academic program that is as effective as that required by this section. The petition must provide evidence in support of the proposed alternate methodology, including evidence of
(1) the number of students in grade 12 that will continue to attend the school the next year;
(2) whether the school's overall attendance rate for grades 9 - 12 exceeds 85 percent; and
(3) other efforts undertaken by the school to ensure that the students in grade 12 continue in an effective educational program.
