The State Department of Education today released the list of schools statewide on the Needs Improvement list, which identifies schools that have failed to make adequate progress for two consecutive years in the same area. They must then make progress for two consecutive years to come off the list.
There are four areas schools are judged on: math performance, reading performance, percent of students taking state exams, and graduation rate for high schools or attendance rate for other schools.
There are 45 schools on the list this year, compared to 53 schools last year.
