Tech, teacher bonuses, data help transform Utah middle school
from The Salt Lake Tribune
The 780 students at Northwest Middle School face myriad challenges. Ninety-two percent come from low-income homes and 87 percent are ethnic minorities. Nearly two-thirds don't speak English at home. And yet, three years after receiving a $2.3 million multiyear school-improvement grant, the west-side Salt Lake City school has risen from the bottom to the top tier of Utah junior high and middle schools in student achievement.
