Focus Schools were identified using three years of EOG data (2012-14). These schools’ scoresindicate that they are contributing to the State’s achievement gaps. We have 14 Focus Schools.
Schools were identified using the following criteria:
- Title I schools with in-school gaps in achievement that that are above state average (38.7%)
when averaging gaps in the previous and at least one of the two prior years between the highest achieving subgroup and lowest-achieving subgroup,
- Title I schools with a “proficiency score-R/M” with a subgroup with proficiency score below 50% in
the previous and one of the two prior years. Additional information and a list of NC Focus Schools.
