Local School Districts Work to Get Off State Lists


Heading into the new school year, a number of local districts have schools in less-than-good standing on a state accountability list.

That list labels some schools as priority, focus or local assistance plan schools — in descending order of seriousness. It also names some districts as focus districts based on scores on state English language arts and mathematics testing for grades three through eight, participation rates on testing and graduation rates.

These districts and schools are subject to extra review, might have to submit improvement plans and could qualify for extra funding.
