Focus Schools

Focus Schools are Title I schools with the highest average performance gap between subgroups.

  • Each subgroup achievement gap difference will be calculated, averaged, and ranked to determine the Title I schools with the highest average achievement gap.
  • Fifty- five schools are designated as Focus Schools, which is equal to at least ten percent of the total number of the Title I schools served by the state.
  • Primary schools, which do not have grades that are tested by the state assessments, are not included.
