Steps to identify schools

  • 92 schools met one of these criteria for 2004-2005.

  • They were then asked to submit data for 2005-2006 and any documentation that might change their 2004-2005 data.

  • Data for 2005-2006 were then reviewed.

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

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