Schools were scored and ranked based on the School Performance Index, which incorporated indicators including PSSA scores, post-secondary readiness, and satisfaction and engagement. The schools were also compared to other similar schools.

The remaining 12 schools are Alert Schools and will "receive resources and supports of the Empowerment program."
