LRSD's Academic Distress Schools Receive 67%, 77%, 92% of Students Three Grades or More Below Level

Posted By Arkansas Learns, Tuesday, June 13, 2017

Print this. Keep it at the ready. And the next time someone suggests that the panacea for the Little Rock School District's ills is "local control," give it to them.

  • LRSD has seven (7) Priority Schools (among lowest 5% academically performing in state)
    • 17.5% of state's total of 40 schools
  • LRSD has fifteen (15) Focus Schools (among lowest 6-10% academically performing in state)
    • 18% of state's total of 85 schools

Consider the self-reported data in the third quarter 45-Day Reports from each of the LRSD Priority Schools:

School % Beginning Year 2 or More
Grade Levels Behind in Math
% Beginning Year 2 or More
Grade Levels Behind in
English Language Arts 
Baseline     
 Grade 2  14.8%  
 Grade 3  31.2%  13%
 Grade 4  31.2%  23%
 Grade 5  44.1%  26%
  % Beginning Year 3 or More
Grade Levels Behind in Math
% Beginning Year 3 or More
Grade Levels Behind in
English Language Arts
 
Cloverdale     
 Grade 6  67%  61%
 Grade 7  65%  63%
 Grade 8  63%  65%
Henderson    
 Grade 6  77%  43%
 Grade 7  79%  35%
 Grade 8  78%  29%
Mabelvale    
 Grade 6  69%  33%
 Grade 7  72%  52%
 Grade 8  77%  52%
Fair    
 Grade 9  95%  76%
 Grade 10  97%  67%
 Grade 11    
 Grade 12    
Hall    
 Grade 9  91.86%  85.56%
 Grade 10  90.06%  70.55%
 Grade 11    
 Grade 12    
McClellan    
 Grade 9  78%  75%
 Grade 10  75%  79%
 Grade 11  50%  77%
 Grade 12  54%  67%

 

See the pattern? With few exceptions (e.g. Henderson's English Language Arts), the longer the students progress in the system, the further they fall behind.

Little Rock has no elementary schools in "Academic Distress," but fourteen of its elementary schools are among the 10% lowest academically performing schools in Arkansas.

When Academic Distress Cloverdale, Henderson and Hall are respectively receiving 67%, 77% and 91.86% of their students three or more grades below level, the pipeline is broken, and the receiving schools are not to blame.
