RECIPIENT, 2020 Education Highest Achievement Award

Mary W. Jackson Fundamental Elementary School (formerly Tucker-Capps)
earned the 2020 Board of Education Highest Achievement Award.

Schools recognized for this highest achievement award were “Accredited” during 2019-2020 (based on performance data from 2018-2019) and demonstrated high levels of success across all school quality indicators, including success in narrowing achievement gaps.

Schools must also have had no more than a 5% achievement gap, for schools with two student groups, or a 10% gap, for schools with three or more student groups, between the lowest-performing group and all other students in the school. In addition, schools must have achieved at Level One on all other applicable school quality indicators.
