To earn Utah Title I Closing the Achievement Gap Awards, schools had to reduce, by at least 50 percent, the achievement gap between the scores of groups of students, such as those divided by ethnicity, and the school as a whole. The schools also had to make Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP) on annual tests toward the goals of No Child Left Behind in math and language arts. And they had to be nominated by their district superintendents or charter school leaders.

Title I schools are schools that accept federal dollars for serving high percentages of students from low-income families.

The State Office also honored 58 Title I schools for high academic performance. To earn the Utah High Performing Title I School Award schools must make AYP for at least two years; score at or above the state average on state math and language arts tests; and be nominated by their district superintendents or charter school leaders.
