The names are out. Here is the PRESS RELEASE from the California Department of Education.
According to the press release:
State and federal laws associated with the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA) and the School Improvement Grant (SIG) program require California to identify the state's low-achieving schools and to require the persistently lowest-achieving 5 percent of those schools to implement one of four school intervention models. The identification of the 5 percent of persistently lowest-achieving schools in California is a multi-step process that is informed by both federal and state law (SBx 51) by Senator Darrell Steinberg, (D-Sacramento).
The 6 Mt. Diablo School District Schools include:
Tier 1 Schools (Tier 1 List):
Tier 2 School (Tier 2 list):
Mt. Diablo High School
For more information on the Persisently Lowest Achieving Schools including definitions of Tier 1 and Tier 2 check it out HERE.
So it looks like some major changes are in store for these schools. Stay tuned...
