PREPS VALUE-ADDED AWARDS ANNOUNCED


For Immediate Press Release (January 30, 2019) - The Program of Research and Evaluation for Public Schools (PREPS, Inc.), Mississippi’s only statewide educational consortium, is honored to announce the 2019 Value-Added Award recipients. An awards luncheon and ceremony will be held Monday, February 25, 2019 at Hattiesburg’s Lake Terrace Convention Center during the 2019 Mississippi Education Partnership Conference hosted by PREPS and the Mississippi Association of Partners in Education (MAPE) which celebrates achievements and collaborations in schools.

The PREPS value-added analysis began in June 1997 and allows for valid comparisons of educational performance on the prior year’s state testing while taking into account the impact of differences in the socioeconomic background of the students considered in the research. The model is used in the PREPS Value-Added Awards Program to identify high performing schools among Mississippi public school districts who are members of the PREPS Consortium. Schools which are deemed as adding value are those performing significantly better than other schools with comparable socioeconomic circumstances. The PREPS organization follows the mission of actively providing research and evaluation for public schools.

The following schools will be recognized at the awards luncheon:
