School test results to be released tomorrow

Bookmark and Share

Durham Public Schools officials are expected to release preliminary ABC test results tomorrow morning.

The results will be key in determining which schools will be placed under the district's  Design for Accelerated Progress Structure, which increases accountability for teachers and principals at the lowest-performing schools. Whether they get to keep their jobs depends on how well students do in the classroom and on state tests. Schools would have up to four years to turn things around or risk consequences that include closure.

Under this plan, schools will receive points based on seven categories, which include end of grade and end of course scores and state recognition and expected growth. Their total points will determine their classification: managed, targeted or reaching accelerated progress.

Those test scores will be announced at Lakewood Elementary at 11 a.m.
