Steps to Identify Schools

  • 51 schools met one of these criteria for 2005-2006.

  • They were then asked to submit data for 2006-2007 and any documentation that might change their 2005-2006 data.

  • Data for 2006-2007 were then reviewed.

  • A total of 17 new schools were then designated as "persistently dangerous."

  • These schools must offer choice to students where possible and submit an incident reduction plan to be approved by the Commissioner.
