Missed City of Little Rock Resolution Opportunities

Posted By Arkansas Learns, Tuesday, May 16, 2017

If educating all students was the priority of the Little Rock Mayor and City Board of Directors, perhaps one or more of the previous Arkansas Department of Education announcements would have warranted a public resolution.

2017

Three (3) LRSD Schools Still in Academic Distress (2014-16 Three-year Average of Less Than 49.5% Proficient) - 20% of State's Total, 2,404 Students Impacted

Seven (7) LRSD Schools Named Priority Schools (Lowest Performing 5% in Arkansas)

Fifteen (15) LRSD Schools Named Focus Schools (Lowest Performing 6-10% in Arkansas)

Twenty-two (22) of the district's 42 tested schools in the bottom 10% in the State.

2016

Five (5) LRSD Schools in Academic Distress (2013-15 Three-year Average of Less Than 49.5% Proficient)

Twenty-three (23) of the district's 42 tested schools in the bottom 10% in the State.

2015

Five (5) LRSD Schools in Academic Distress (2013-2015 Three-year Average of Less Than 49.5% Proficient)

Eight (8) LRSD Schools Named Priority Schools (Lowest Performing 5% in Arkansas)

Fifteen (15) LRSD Schools Named Focus Schools (Lowest Performing 6-10% in Arkansas)

Seventeen (17) LRSD Schools Receive 'D' on State's A-F School Report Card

Twenty-three (23) of the district's 42 tested schools in the bottom 10% in the State.

2014

Six (6) LRSD Schools Named in Academic Distress (2012-2014 Three-year Average of 49.5% or Less Proficient)

Seven (7) LRSD Schools Priority Schools (Lowest Performing 5% in Arkansas)

Nine (9) LRSD Schools Focus Schools (Lowest Performing 6-10% in Arkansas)

Fourteen (14) LRSD Schools Receive an 'D' on State's First A-F School Report Card.  

Eight (8) LRSD Schools Receive an 'F' on State's First A-F School Report Card.  

Sixteen (16) of the district's 42 tested schools in the bottom 10% in the State.

2013

Six (6) LRSD Named in Academic Distress (2011-2013 Three-year Average of 49.5% or Less Proficient)

Seven (7) LRSD Schools Priority Schools (Lowest Performing 5% in Arkansas)

Nine (9) LRSD Schools Focus Schools (Lowest Performing 6-10% in Arkansas)

Sixteen (16) of the district's 42 tested schools in the bottom 10% in the State.

2012

Seven (7) LRSD Schools Still Priority Schools (Lowest Performing 5% in Arkansas)

Nine (9) LRSD Schools Still Focus Schools (Lowest Performing 6-10% in Arkansas)

Sixteen (16) of the district's 42 tested schools performed in the bottom 10% in the State.

2011

Eight (8) LRSD Schools Named Priority Schools (Lowest Performing 5% in Arkanas)

Ten (10) LRSD Schools Named Focus Schools (Lowest Performing 6-10% in Arkansas) 

Eighteen (18) of the district's 42 tested schools performed in the bottom 10% in the State.

 

Schools could not be added to the federally required 2011 Focus and Priority lists; they could only emerge. In four years, only two LRSD schools did, but one of those returned on the new list in 2015, along with six additional schools, totaling more than half of those tested. No schools emerged in 2017.

And yet, there were no resolutions, no petitions...no rallies.

When the non-proficiency of a student becomes a greater catalyst for outrage and action than the non-renewal of an adult and/or who is or is not in control of the district and its vast resources, Little Rock and her people will finally progress as a community.
