School improvement list

Posted By on Fri, Oct 9, 2009 at 11:38 AM

The state Education Department today released the annual list of schools falling short in various areas in showing sufficient progress of students as measured by test results. In time, districts that fail to achieve standards can be taken over by the state.

The measurements evaluate individual schools as well as districts. A quick glance indicates a rise in the number of schools at various stages of the improvement monitoring process -- from 375 to 407 of almost 1,200 schools.  The number of districts on the list held steady at 25. It includes the three public school districts in Pulaski County.

Here's the school-by-school list.

This is the Education Department overview news release.
