2017-18 Focus Schools: James Rhoads
James Rhoads was designated a focus school because it meets the three basic criteria:
- The School Progress Report score (SPR) for the school has been in the lowest performance tier – Intervene – for three consecutive years.
- The three year SPR average for the school is less than or equal to 15.
- The school does not currently have a major intervention in place (such as the Turnaround Network, School Redesign Initiative, etc…)
The District will be working with the school community to identify the school’s biggest needs. This will help the District determine what kinds of investments and interventions will make the biggest impact on school performance for students. We want your input. See below for a schedule of upcoming events.
