DELPHOS — The Ohio Department of Education announces Delphos Franklin Elementary School received two additional honors for showing growth, improvement and “continuing to enhance learning” for its pupils.
Franklin was selected a 2018 “School of Promise” for student growth and closing the achievement gaps in math and reading on its 2018 report card. To qualify, a school must serve at least 40 percent economically disadvantaged students, have 80 percent of its students rated proficient in reading and math, score an A or B on the gap closing component and receive an A or B on the report card’s progress component.
The school is also one of 66 schools to receive “High Progress School of Honor.” That means the school had gains in English language arts and math in the 90th percentile statewide.
Last month, the school learned it was one of two schools in Ohio nominated for the National ESEA Distinguished School Honor.
