Alpha Plus CEO Jan Barrick says the federal ESEA designations lists issued on Feb. 13 show one third of the schools (20 of 61 or 33%) served by Alpha Plus in 2012-13 were identified as 2013 Reward Schools by the Oklahoma State Department of Education. In addition, a “Targeted Intervention” and a “Priority” school helped by Alpha Plus last year improved math and reading test scores enough to be removed from the ESEA list of low-performing schools.

Barrick issued her second annual Alpha Plus Honor Roll based on the 2013 results. “We helped 61 schools in the 2012-13 school year and nearly half received As or Bs on their state report cards, with just one-fourth performing below the state average,” Barrick said. “While we are proud of the progress ALL schools working with Alpha Plus, we want to annually honor the educators and students at schools achieving above-average results.” Alpha Plus serves approximately 500 teachers and principals in 24 counties and scored benchmark assessments for more than 15,000 students statewide last school year.
