Top performing Ark. schools to be announced

Posted: Updated:

The Arkansas Education Department is to release a list of the top public schools, as judged in an accountability report.

Education Commissioner Tom Kimbrell said the list wasn't finished on Tuesday, when the rest of the accountability report was released. Kimbrell said the department was still going through the various evaluations for how students did in math and literacy.

Last year, 19 schools were awarded the top distinction of being "exemplary."

There was a sharp decline in the latest report in the number of schools classified as needing improvement. But Kimbrell says those schools still can be good performers. He says the standards for year-to-year improvement are tough to meet and schools not in the top categories still can be doing well in math and literacy proficiency.
