9 Memphis schools may join Achievement District

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) -- Nine schools in Memphis may be joining the Achievement School District.

WMC-TV reports the schools are eligible to join in 2014. The goal of the district is to help the state's poorest-performing schools get into the top 25 percent in a five-year time frame.

The schools that qualify include four elementaries -- Coleman, Denver, Springhill and Westwood; two middle schools -- South Side and Wooddale; and three high schools -- Carver, Fairley and Frayser.
