TITLE I REWARDS SCHOOLS
A Title 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.
