Kansas saw a slight decrease in schools and school districts making adequate progress on improving test scores in 2008-09.

Education Commissioner Alexa Posny said Wednesday that 87.6% of schools and 88.5% of districts made the state's achievement targets for math and reading. That compares to 90% of schools and 92% of districts in 2007-08. In 2006-07, the figures were 89% for both schools and districts.

Among the districts failing to make adequate progress were Kansas City, Topeka and Wichita, among the largest in the state.

The goal is to reach 100% of proficiency among all students in math and reading by 2014 under the federal No Child Left Behind Act.
