Two Iowa City schools were designated Monday as Persistently Low-Achieving Schools by the Iowa Department of Education for the 2014-15 school year.

Twain Elementary and Kirkwood Elementary have been identified as Schools in Need of Assistance. The schools will be develop a restructuring plan to be implemented in 2014-15.

These identifications qualify the schools for federal funds to reform K-12 education.

Despite the classification, the schools showed increases in scores from fall 2013 to fall 2013 in reading and math from the Iowa Assessment data.
