The Georgia Department of Education Tuesday released the list of 2013 Reward and Alert Schools as part of the state’s waiver from the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA), and only one local school, Smyrna’s Campbell Middle, was listed. Campbell Middle, which serves Vinings residents, was classified as a Reward School with the Highest Progress.

No local schools in the Atlanta Public Schools or Fulton County Schools districts were listed.

Reward Schools are defined as the following:

o A Highest-Performing School is a Title I school among the 5 percent of Title I schools in the state that has the highest absolute performance over three years for the “all students” group on the statewide assessments. A school may not be classified as a Highest-Performing School if it has been identified as a Priority, Focus or Alert School.

o A High-Progress School is a Title I school among the 10 percent of Title I schools in the State that is making the most progress in improving the performance of the “all students” group over three years on the statewide assessments. A school may not be classified as a High-Progress School if it has been identified as a Priority, Focus, or Alert School.

Alert Schools are defined as Title I and Non-Title I schools and can be identified the following ways:

o Graduation Alert

o Subgroup Alert

o Subject Alert

o Graduation Alert: graduation rate is below three standard deviations from the mean of the state’s subgroups’ graduation rate; based on nine ESEA subgroups

o Subgroup Alert: achievement rate is below three standard deviations from the mean of the state’s subgroups’ meets and exceeds rate; based on nine ESEA subgroups

o Subject Alert: subject achievement is below three standard deviations from the mean of the state’s meets and exceeds rate for each subject; does not include Priority Schools and Focus Schools
