Congratulations are in order for GJHS & GHS! The Office for Education Policy (OEP) at the University of Arkansas has recognized these schools for the high growth demonstrated by students on the ACT Aspire in 2017. OEP creates an annual report entitled the Outstanding Educational Performance Awards, and this year OEP is recognizing schools with high student growth, considering growth as one of the best indicators of the positive impact schools have on students.

In the high school level reports released this week, Greenbrier Junior High received the following awards:

Statewide High Overall Growth: High School Level

Statewide High Math Growth: High School Level

Statewide High ELA Growth: High School Level

High Overall Growth: High School Level (Central Region)

High Math Growth: High School Level (Central Region)

High ELA Growth: High School Level (Central Region)

 

In the high school level reports released this week, Greenbrier High received the following awards:

Statewide High Overall Growth: High School Level

High Math Growth: High School Level (Central Region)

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. OEP is awarding awards based on Overall growth, as well as for growth in Math and English Language Arts separately. To learn more about OEP award winners and to see the full list of award recipients, you can view the report here.

We congratulate GJHS & GHS on these accomplishments and hope that you will share this good news with teachers, students, and others who contributed to your school’s success.

Congratulations again on your OEP Growth awards!
