The Office for Education Policy (OEP) at the University of Arkansas has recognized our district as having a school, Flippin High School, where students are “Beating the Odds” because students at our school demonstrated high growth on the ACT Aspire English Language Arts (ELA) Assessment. The OEP creates an annual report entitled the Outstanding Educational Performance Awards, and this year they are recognizing schools with high student growth. They think growth is the best indicator of the positive impact that our school is having on students. These growth scores reflect how much students at the school improved from 2016 compared to how much they were expected to grow considering prior achievement. The OEP give awards based on Overall growth, as well as for growth in Math and English Language Arts separately. To learn more about how the OEP determined the award winners and to see the full list of award recipients, you can view the report here.
