Nineteen Schools Removed from State's Need-To-Improve List

APRIL 24, 2006 - Posted at 7:58 a.m. CST

 

LITTLE ROCK, AR - The state Education Department says 19 Arkansas schools have been removed from a list of schools that must improve or face sanctions.  The removals were the result of successful appeals that argued the schools shouldn't have been on the list in the first place.

The list was released last November, and included schools whose students did not, on average, reach minimum standards.  Schools on the list can face penalties, including allowing students to transfer to better-performing schools within a district, replacing faculty at a school or even closing a school.

The schools taken off appealed successfully by showing that data or coding errors had been made, or that grades taught at the schools were changed so the schools actually should have been classified as new schools.
