Each year, the Indiana Department of Education recognizes schools that perform in the upper 25th percentile in performance on ISTEP+ and ECA state exams, as well their rating determined by the national No Child Left Behind statute’s Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP).
Today, a total of 311 schools statewide were named Indiana’s Four-Star schools for 2012-13.
“Winning this award required excellent work by teachers, administrators, students and parents throughout the year, and on behalf of the entire Indiana Department of Education, I send them my sincere congratulations.”
