George Washington Carver wins state Momentum Award
CMSD NEWS BUREAU
Seven CMSD schools have received state Momentum Awards for achieving academic growth that exceeded expectations last school year.
It is the largest number of District schools to earn the award since it was started in 2015.
Glenville High School won its third Momentum Award and Paul L. Dunbar PreK-8 School received the award for a second time.
First-time winners included three PreK-8 schools -- Clara Westropp, George Washington Carver and Miles – and two high schools – Cleveland High School for Digital Arts and Rhodes College and Career Academy.
To qualify, schools must earn straight A’s in applicable measures of value-added, a measure of whether groups reach the level of growth forecast for them. Measures include growth by students with disabilities, students in the lowest 20 percent of achievement and gifted students.
