However, a trio of local high schools didn’t meet the guidelines: Ann Arbor’s Stone High School, Willow Run High School and Ypsilanti High School.

Performance objectives need to be met for AYP. By 2013-14, schools need to have all their students 100 percent proficient on the MEAP (for elementary and middle school students) and the Michigan Merit Exam (for high school students).
In addition, in grades 3 to 8, schools must have an average daily attendance rate of 85 percent or higher. High schools must have a 85 percent graduation rate.
All of the items are measured not only for the entire school, but also for subgroups like special education, economically disadvantaged and others. To make AYP, a school has to have all its subgroups meet all the criteria. Missing one means the school doesn't make AYP.
Schools receiving Title I funding, a federal program that provides resources to schools in areas of economic need, could face sanctions under the federal No Child Left Behind Act if the school doesn't make AYP for two or more years in a row. These sanctions increase in severity for every year a Title I school does not make AYP.
