Statewide, 562 schools received the awards for overall achievement and improved performance by special populations or subgroups that include race/ethnicity, special education, limited English proficiency, and students who are receiving free or reduced price meals.

Seven elementary schools received cash awards of $7,233.68, for a total cash award to local schools of $50,635. Only schools receiving federal funding through Title I were eligible for cash awards.

In addition, 76 elementary schools, 16 middle schools, 9 high schools, and a special education center received certificates for overall achievement, improvement among subgroups from 2003 to 2004, or both.
