ALBANY - The state Education Department's annual list of under-performing schools includes 532 schools and 35 districts statewide, of which 99 schools and four districts are newly identified.

The number of problem schools is higher than the 499 identified at the beginning of the 2009-10 school year, although the number of districts has remained the same, according to the Education Department, which released the list Thursday. There were 49 schools and three districts that were new to the list issued a year ago.

This year's increase comes after a change in the calculation of adequate yearly progress - a standard under the federal No Child Left Behind Act - for students with disabilities, and time adjustment of assessment cut scores because state tests were given later this year.
