ES Earns Title I Reward School Distinction
TITLE I REWARDS SCHOOLS
ATitle I Reward School is a Title I school among the 5-percent of Title I schools in the state that is making the most progress in improving the performance of the all-students group over the most recent two years on the statewide assessments. A school may not be classified as a Title I Reward School if it is also identified as a Targeted School of Improvement (TSI), a Comprehensive School of Improvement (CSI) or a Promise/Turn-around School.
Data Determination for List of Title I Reward Schools (Beginning 2020)
Count the number of Title I schools in the state for the previous school year.
Multiply the number of Title I schools in the state for the previous school year by 5-percent.
The resulting value is the number of Title I schools in the state that are to be identified as Title I Reward Schools.
At the school level, aggregate the all-student and subgroup achievement results based on assessment data from the previous two-years for all End-of-Course Tests (EOCTs), all Georgia Milestones Assessments, and Georgia Alternate Assessments (GAAs). For a group (all-students as well as the remaining nine traditional subgroups) to be considered in the calculations, the group must meet the minimum n size of 15, where each member of the group has a valid assessment for each content area.
Rank the schools based on the greatest amount of progress.
Remove schools from the list of schools that have been identified as CSI, TSI, or Promise/Turnaround Schools.
Identify the top 5-percent of Title I schools in any given fiscal year as Title I Reward Schools.
