August 19-- Kansas now has a larger list of schools whose children failed to make adequate progress on state-wide tests.
A revised list from the Department of Education shows that 21 schools and seven districts with large populations of poor children failed to make progress last term.
Such schools and districts must notify parents and give them the option of transferring to another school.
The new list includes information about Wichita schools. The preliminary list was issued last week, but the Wichita data was incomplete.
Further review shows that six Wichita schools-Curtis, Hamilton, Marshall, Mead and Pleasant Valley Middle Schools, along with Caldwell Elementary, failed to make adequate progress, compared to four schools the previous year. Anderson Elementary made enough progress to drop off the list.
State officials will release another list of schools in October.
