Camden Fairview Elementary and Ivory Primary have been recognized by the Office for Educational Policy at the University of Arkansas as schools where students are “Beating the Odds”! Students at Fairview Elementary and Ivory Primary demonstrated high growth on the ACT Aspire even though the school serves a high-poverty population. The Office for Educational Policy creates an annual report entitled the Oustanding Educational Policy Awards and recognizes schools with high student growth which OEP believes is the best indicator of the positive impact that your school is having on students. This report is based on the 2017 growth score calculated by the Arkansas Department of Education. These growth scores reflect how much students at the school improved from 2016 compared to how much they were expected to grow considering a prior achievement.
