From 1970 until today i still think that when my mother moved from Dallas,Texas that J.L. JONES played aimportant role in my life

I don't think there's nothing wrong with j.l.jones my child goes there and he is doing just great. Your grammar is horrible. I hope he is learning better than you.

I don't think there's nothing wrong with j.l.jones my child goes there and he is doing just great. It depends on the child and the teacher.

I don't believe that J.L Jones is for the children. The school staff (teachers) miss numerous days, if teachers are not in the classroom. How are the children learning. Assignments are not givening in a timely manner. Spelling words should not be given out on a thursday and students are expected to test the following friday.Parent work therefore I do believe that a week notice for extra curriclum activites should be provided. J.L Jones sends a note home the day before the meeting. Therefore, I issue the school the failing garde of F.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Louisiana used the integrated Louisiana Educational Assessment Program (iLEAP) to assess students in grades 3, 5, 6, and 7 in math, English language arts, science, and social studies. The iLEAP is a standards-based test, which means it measures specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Louisiana.

In preparation for new assessments in 2014-15, Louisiana is including more common core aligned content in LEAP and iLEAP tests in 2012-13 and in 2013-14. The percent of students earning a proficient score is expected to be lower as a result of this change.
