Ten public school divisions and 124 schools are being honored by the Virginia Board of Education for raising the academic achievement of economically disadvantaged students. The awards are based on student achievement on state assessments during 2007-2008 and the previous school year. The 124 schools recognized as “Title I Distinguished Schools” maintained full state accreditation for two consecutive years, meeting NCLB benchmarks in reading and mathematics and having average test scores in both subjects at the 60th percentile or higher.
