Closing the Achievement Gap

The North Dakota Rural Education Research Alliance (NDRERA) has been working with Research Educational Laboratory or (REL Central) to identify rural districts that have closed the achievement gap for low socio-economic students. RERA created a goal to identify rural schools that narrowed achievement gap between students who qualify for free/reduced price lunch, and those who do not in ND. An alliance meeting was held on June 15, 2016 to identify parameters for analyses and another meeting was held on September 19, 2016 to identify cut scores for awards to districts that closed the gap. For more information on the analysis and process, please visit the NDDPI website.

NDRERA would like to congratulate the following districts on closing the gap for students qualifying for free/reduced price lunch.
