Congrats, Minnesota Celebration Schools 2014!
Based upon student proficiency and growth, reduction in achievement gaps, and increases in graduation rates, Minnesota's Multiple Measure Rating (MMR), designates each public school as Reward, Celebration-Eligible, Continuous Improvement, Focus and Priority.
Reward Schools are those performing in the top 15% among Title 1 schools. Celebration-Eligible schools are next 25%, and they are eligible to apply for "Celebration status." This year 143 schools applied by documenting their efforts to expand student proficiency and growth and decrease the any achievement gaps. The Minnesota Department of Education has recently announced the 22 "Celebration Schools" of 2014.
