The state has honored CMSD’s Clark PreK-8 School and Glenville High School for exceeding expectations in student academic growth last year.
The State Board of Education presented Momentum Awards to both schools. It is the second time that Clark has received the recognition.
To receive the award, schools have to earn straight A’s on all of the value-added categories on their state report cards. Value-added measures whether students achieved the gains expected of them in a year.
In the 2014-15 school year, Glenville was designated as a low-performing Investment School and targeted for special intervention. The strategy was part of The Cleveland Plan, a customized blueprint for education reform in the city.
The State Board of Education presented Momentum Awards to 217 schools across Ohio.
