Commack High School and Burr Intermediate School recently received designated as a New York State Reward School by New York State Commissioner John B. King, Jr.

Commack High School and Burr Intermediate were two of 249 schools designated for the 2012-2013 academic year. Among other requirements, schools granted the designation had to be in the top 20 percent in the state for English language arts and math performance for the past two years.

Reward School status is awarded to schools that are identified “among those schools that have the highest achievement in the state or are making the most progress and do not have significant gaps in student achievement that are not being closed,” according to the state's Department of Education.

"Closing the gaps in student achievement" sounds like AVIS : We're #2, we try harder.

Does this mean Commack will receive additional funding for education (Not Administration) from the state?
