Harry Stone has been confirmed as Title I Reward school for both lower and middle grades. Congratulations to both the staff and students! See the list linked below for the TEA list, where Harry Stone is listed in both the 2014-15 High-performance and High-progress schools.
On April 30, 2015, the Texas Education Agency announced the more than 400 Title I Reward high-performing and/or high-progress Title I schools for school year 2014-15. A high-performing reward school is identified as a Title I school with distinctions based on reading and math performance, as well as the highest graduation rates at the high school level. A high‐progress school is identified as a Title I school in the top 25% in annual improvement and/or schools in the top 25% of those demonstrating ability to close performance gaps based on system safeguards.
Schools must meet, or exceed, the AMO targets of 79% on each of the system safeguards evaluated for all students and all subgroups, including the seven federally required student groups in math and reading subject areas. Your school did meet the reward criteria and is now identified as a high progress and/or high performing reward school.
