Schools of Excellence
A School of Excellence is a school that meets its expected growth standard and has at least 90 percent of its students performing at or above grade level. Such schools will be recognized at a statewide banquet sponsored by the State Board of Education and the Department of Public Instruction in September, 1997. They will receive a dated banner to hang in the school and a certificate. In addition, they will receive a financial award.
