Elm City College Prep, a K-8 charter school run by Achievement First, was one of 97 Connecticut schools to earn top recognition in new school rankings the state released Saturday.

The state Department of Education on ranked Connecticut public schools using a new classification system. It state ranked every public school on a 100-point scale School Performance Index based on “student achievement, change in student achievement, student growth, college- and career-readiness, subgroup performance and college- and career-readiness, and school climate,” according to a state press release. The rankings are based on two state standardized tests from 2011 and 2012: the Connecticut Mastery Test for grades 3 to 8, and the Connecticut Academic Performance Test for high school sophomores.

Can you write a piece about the non charter schools that made the list of distinction? Why is one charter mentioned and not one traditional public school? Can you do a follow up story?

If it is in your report I don’t know why the headline cannot mention more schools rather than highlighting one charter.
