Louisiana School Perfomance Reports and the NEW Grading System

Real Estate Agent with JTR Property Network at Keller Williams Realty Red River

Yesterday, the Louisiana Department of Education released the School Performance Scores for the state, and for the first time in was done with the same A-F system of grading that is used to evaluate students.  In the past the scores were given in the form of star ratings, using the scoring system below.

This system was confusing, and many have argued that does not accurately represent the conditions of the schools.  This ultimately resulted in the lack of much needed improvements our local schools require.  So, after the passage of a 2010 law the State has gone to the A-F grading system that we all are too familiar with stating, "Today is the beginning of an honest dialogue.  Today we start telling the truth.  Today is about transparency for our parents, schools and taxpayers".  Below is a table showing how our local schools performed this last year.
