Annotation:This research adds to growing evidence on high-performing, high-poverty schools by looking closely at the practices of a small number of such schools across Kentucky. Using the standardized school audit instrument developed by the state Department of Education, researchers sought to answer two questions: 1. What common characteristics that seem to contribute to high student performance are shared by a set of high-performing, high-poverty schools? 2. What characteristics and practices differentiate a set of high-performing, high-poverty schools with a small achievement gap from similar high-poverty schools that are neither high-performing nor have a small achievement gap?
