Underperforming awards process

Nearly 20 percent of high-poverty schools in California received achievement awards without meeting the state’s academic progress guidelines, AP reports.

In some cases, the achievement gap between students of different ethnic backgrounds grew by double digits from the year before at schools that received the awards.

Superintendent Jack O’Connell’s office blames a technical error and says awards will be rescinded to schools that don’t qualify. AP says 81 schools don’t meet state guidelines; so far, the state has found fewer than 20 that will lose their awards.
