Only sixteen percent of the nation's 15,571 public school districts (2,437) have been recognized for meeting the needs of families choosing schools. The nation's largest school selection consulting firm, SchoolMatch® of Columbus, OH, announced the 2012 Twenty-first Annual award in a recent letter to State School Leadership Associations and State Department of Education Superintendents.

Criteria used for award selection include:

  • A close match to what SchoolMatch® users most often request. Compilation of over 97,000 parent questionnaires completed by SchoolMatch® clients reveals parents most often look for school systems that are:
    1. competitive in academic test scores and academically solid, but not so rigorous as to intimidate their children
    2. accredited
    3. recognized for excellence by a national foundation or by the U.S. Department of Education
    4. competitive in teacher salaries
    5. above average in instructional expenditures on a national percentile basis
    6. above average in expenditures for library/media services on a national percentile basis
    7. known for small class size
  • Availability of programs at the secondary level. Since relocating parents often focus upon finding a school system that produces a certain quality of "end product" (a high school graduate), only school systems that provide secondary school programs are eligible for the award.
