To recognize schools that make significant growth from one year to the next, Louisiana designates schools that achieve their growth target as a Top Gains school if they are not in subgroup component failure, and they are not identified as failing NCLB subgroup performance more than one year. Top Gains schools are eligible for monetary awards that can be used for any educational purpose within the school.
Schools can increase their School Performance Score by 1) improving student performance yearly on state assessments and/or 2) by earning bonus points for improving student performance for the lowest-performing students.
Haughton Middle School received this prestigious award for acquiring all ten of the bonus points available. Only seven schools in Bossier Parish were given this award.
