    Our vision is to create the necessary conditions for a globally superior public education system. We want schools in the bottom 5% to be in the top 25% of the schools statewide.

    Table 1. Identification of PLA/Priority Schools: Closed (by district decision), Released, and Retained
    During the seven-year period starting in 2010 there have been 407 schools identified as Persistently Lowest Achieving (PLA) or Priority. The PLA metric was used in both 2010 and 2011. Since 2012 the Top-to-Bottom metric has been implemented. Schools remain in their respective cohorts for at least four years.

    Priority/PLA Cohorts
    Cohort Identified Statewide Closed Released Retained
    2010 92 31 381 18
    2011 40 7 232 8
    2012 88 23 34 18
    2013 51 8 34 9
    2014 60 7 11 TBD
    2015 513 4 TBD TBD
    2016 454 1 TBD TBD
    Subtotal* 427 * Subtotal includes 20 schools renamed in multiple years.
    Total 407 81 140 53

    The number of schools that will be released from Priority Cohorts after 2011 will depend on the schools’ performance on all exit criteria. Schools must meet all the following three exit criteria:

    1. Top-to-Bottom Requirement (TTB): The school must have a TTB percentile rank of 5 or higher.
    2. Annual Measurable Objective (AMOs): The school must meet its AMOs for both math and reading in the all-students subgroup.
    3. Assessment Participation Requirement: The school must have at least a 95% participation rate on all required state assessments.
