The Federal No Child Left Behind (NCLB) Act of 2001, requires all states to develop an accountability plan that outlines how the state will determine that schools and school districts are making Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP); however, the state of Florida was granted a waiver to some of the provisions of No Child Left Behind. In school year 2012-13, schools established Annual Measurable Objectives (AMO) in reading, math, writing, and science, which will be monitored for progress.

Florida's plan to monitor academic progress is called "Differentiated Accountability." Under Differentiated Accountability, school success is based on the school grade. The school grade is based on students' performance on FCAT and other factors. The data used for the AMO incorporates assessment results in grades 3-10 from FCAT, ESE alternative assessment, and students with limited English proficiency (CELLA). Not making AMOs does not mean that a school is failing. It means that the school has not met a certain standard for at least one group of students.
