Dear Superintendent Brown, Congratulations! Wonder Junior High and The Academies of West Memphis Charter have been recognized by the Office for Education Policy (OEP) at the University of Arkansas as schools that are Beating the Odds, because students demonstrated high growth on the ACT Aspire even though the schools serve a high percentage of students who participate in Free and Reduced Lunch! As you may know, the OEP creates an annual report entitled the Outstanding Educational Performance Awards where we recognize schools with high student academic growth. We think growth is the best indicator of the positive impact that your school is having on students. In our Beating the Odds report published today, Wonder Junior High recieved the following awards: High Math Growth (Northeast region) High ELA Growth (Northeast region) The Academies of West Memphis Charter recieved the following award: High ELA Growth (Northeast region) We provide badges for placement on your school's website (attached), and personalized paper awards will be sent to the district later this school year. Awards are based on the 2023 content growth score calculated by the Division of Elementary and Secondary Education. These growth scores reflect how much students at the school improved from 2022 compared to how much they were expected to grow considering prior achievement. We recognize schools based on Overall growth, as well as for growth in Math and English Language Arts separately. To learn more about how we determined the OEP award winners and to see the full list of award recipients, you can view the report here. We congratulate you on this accomplishment and hope that you will share this good news with teachers, students, and others who contributed to your school's success. This year's full list of OEP awards can be found here. For updates and insights, follow our blog at https://oep.uark.edu, and to be added to our weekly updates and roundup of education news, send an email to oep@uark.edu with the subject line "Sign me up!" Congratulations again on your OEP Growth awards! Sincerely, Sarah McKenzie, PhD Executive Director Office for Education Policy University of Arkansas 479-409-9753
