Searcy School District is proud to announce  notification that two schools in the district have been recognized by the Office of Educational Policy (OEP) at the University of Arkansas as schools where students demonstrated high growth on the ACT Aspire. The OEP creates an annual report entitled the Outstanding Educational Performance Awards and is recognizing schools with high student growth this year as growth is the best indicator of positive impact.

 Westside Elementary School received the following awards:

High Overall Growth: Elementary Level (Northwest Region)

High ELA Growth: Elementary Level (Northwest Region)

 

Sidney Deener Elementary School was recognized for:

Statewide High ELA Growth: Elementary Level

High Overall Growth: Elementary Level (Northwest Region)

High ELA Growth: Elementary Level (Northwest Region)

Awards are based on the 2018 content growth score calculated by the Arkansas Department of Education. These growth scores reflect how much students at the school improved from 2017 compared to how much they were expected to grow considering prior achievement. Congratulations to Westside Elementary School and Sidney Deener Elementary School for this accomplishment.
