Central Community School System District Performance Summary

November 17, 2016

This morning, the Louisiana Department of Education released district and school performance scores. Our district continues to achieve at the highest levels, earning a score of 111.2, which ranks second out of seventy-two districts. This score is an increase of 6.8 points from 2015 and propelled Central two slots higher in the state standings. The growth is a testament to the hard work and dedication of our teachers, students, and community.

Central High School’s performance score increased by 6.1 points, and the institution was recognized as a 2016 Top Gains school, one of twenty-three such high schools in the state. The increase was fueled by strength of diploma index and the cohort graduation rate index, indicating more of our students are graduating and with stronger credentials.

Central Middle School’s score of 111.6 represented a gain of 6 points from 2015.

Central Intermediate School earned a 96.9 school performance score. The school’s assessment index, which measures students’ performance on LEAP, grew 0.8 points from 2015. Because Tanglewood Elementary School and Bellingrath Hills Elementary School do not participate in state testing, they are assigned the same score as Central Intermediate School.

These achievements are a positive reflection on our schools and our community. Thank you for your continuing support of our schools. The foundation of our schools is our children, and our children would not be successful without the backing of the community and the diligence of our teachers.
