Awards are based on the 2017 content growth score calculated by the Arkansas Department of Education. These growth scores reflect how much students at the school improved from 2016 compared to how much they were expected to grow considering prior achievement. We are awarding awards based on Overall growth, as well as for growth in Math and English Language Arts separately.
