• Focus Schools

    Focus Schools were identified using three years of EOG data (2012-14). These schools’ scoresindicate that they are contributing to the State’s achievement gaps. We have 14 Focus Schools.

    Schools were identified using the following criteria:

    • Title I schools with in-school gaps in achievement that that are above state average (38.7%) 
      when averaging gaps in the previous and at least one of the two prior years between the highest achieving subgroup and lowest-achieving subgroup, 
    • Title I schools with a “proficiency score-R/M” with a subgroup with proficiency score below 50% in 
      the previous and one of the two prior years. Additional information and a list of NC Focus Schools.
