Two Schools Receive OEP Awards

Salem Elementary and Collegeville Elementary have been recognized by the Office for Education Policy (OEP) at the University of Arkansas as schools where students demonstrated high growth on the ACT Aspire.

OEP creates an annual report entitled the Outstanding Educational Performance Awards where schools with high student academic growth are recognized. These awards name growth as the best indicator of the positive impact that schools are having on students.

In the OEP Elementary School Level report published recently,

Salem Elementary School received the following awards:
High Overall Growth (Statewide)
High ELA Growth (Statewide)
High ELA Growth (Central region)
Collegeville Elementary School received the following award:
High Overall Growth (Statewide)

Awards are based on the 2022 content growth score calculated by the Division of Elementary and Secondary Education. These growth scores reflect how much students at the school improved from 2021 compared to how much they were expected to grow considering prior achievement. Schools are recognized based on Overall growth, as well as for growth in Math and English Language Arts separately. 

Congratulations to Salem and Collegeville!
