Achievement Schools

Achievement Schools - Transforming Schools, Transforming Lives

Our district is kicking off the 2018-2019 school year with a new structure: five geographical areas (Areas 1-5) plus Achievement Schools, a group of 50 high-needs schools that will form their own area.

Every school and every student deserves to be set up for success. Here’s how we’ll make that happen: Equity – it's about giving students what they need. We’ll steer support to our high-needs schools and listen to members of our community to shape our work and raise expectations.

Our Achievement Schools have been selected based on performance data. Focused support and additional resources will stay in place for a school until it earns a "C” grade or better for three straight years.
