Colorado schools face penalty for lack of progress

DENVER (AP) - Five of Colorado's poorest-performing schools are facing a loss of funding because they haven't improved academically, despite more money from the federal government.

The schools include an elementary school in Denver and four middle schools in Pueblo. Those schools got more federal money for two years from funds designed to help the country's lowest-achieving schools improve.

According to the Denver Post, Denver school officials will submit a revised plan as part of an appeal to keep their funding. Pueblo school leaders did not return calls requesting comment.
