CHARLESTON, W. Va. – Schools across West Virginia are honored for being at the top of the class. The West Virginia Department of Education (WVDE) today announced the 2014-2015 Reward Schools. The distinction is based on results from the WESTEST2 conducted in the spring of 2014. Forty-two schools earned the distinction. 

The Reward Schools are identified in two categories.

  • High Performing Reward Schools are Success schools that exhibit the highest absolute performance and do not have persistent achievement gaps between student groups.
  • High Progress Reward Schools are Success and Transition schools that are making the greatest progress in the growth component of the WV Accountability Index with no significant achievement gaps across student groups.
