Because of the 95R status, staff are not eligible for incentive awards. School will not be assigned an assistance team. The 95R status indicates that less than 95 percent of eligible students were tested. High schools are required to test at least 95 percent of eligible students.

Status changes were based on feedback from schools and/or school districts following the October release of the 2000-01 ABCs Report Card. For more information, please contact Louis Fabrizio, Accountability Services, DPI, 919.807.3770.
