CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) -- The West Virginia Board of Education has identified nearly 100 schools across the state that will get additional support to close learning gaps.

The board announced Wednesday that 97 schools in 39 counties were identified based on their performance. Elementary and middle schools were identified based on test scores. High schools were identified based on gaps in graduation rates.

These schools will get a comprehensive assessment of areas to target over three years. The program is part of the state's plan to break away from certain provisions of the federal No Child Left Behind Act.

The board in April identified a list of priority schools, which were among the lowest 5 percent of Title I schools based on school-wide student achievement and a historical lack of progress over three years.

Following is the full list of affected schools:
