10 Eligibility The program requires schools to meet either of two assessment criteria. Dramatically Improving- schools that have at least 40 percent of their students from disadvantaged backgrounds that dramatically improve student performance in accordance with state assessment systems High Performing- schools that score in the top 10 percent on state assessments.
