The Rewards category is reserved for schools with the highest performance or the biggest academic gains by students in the last three years.

Schools can receive a "Highest Performing School" reward or a "High Progress School" reward.

Reward Schools are defined as:

  • A "Highest-Performing School" is a Title I school among the 5% of Title I schools in the State that has the highest absolute performance over three years for the "all students" group on the statewide assessments.   A Highest-Performing School must have made Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP) for the "all students" group and all of its subgroups in 2011. A school may not be classified as a Highest-Performing School if there are significant achievement gaps across subgroups that are not closing in the school.

or

  • A "High-Progress School" is a Title I school among the 10% of Title I schools in the State that is making the most progress in improving the performance of the "all students" group over three years on the statewide assessments. A school may not be classified as a High-Progress School if there are significant achievement gaps across subgroups that are not closing in the school.
