My five-year-old son is enrolled in Kindergarten at Lincoln this year (2012-2013) and so far, so good. He is a special needs student, so he has what's called a "shadow", or an aid who accompanies him for a certain amount of time during the day, to make sure he stays focused, follows instructions and understands what goes on during class. His teachers all challenge and encourage him to play, learn and explore. I was a bit apprehensive about enrolling him in a special needs class because of all the stigma attached to it, but after meeting and talking, in depth, with these skilled and very caring educators, I have no doubt in my mind that I made the right decision by dealing with his issues head-on while he's still young, with the hope that his limitations will improve as he gets older. His teachers treat him with the same diginity, respect and nurturing attitudes as they do their other students, but with the understanding that some things may be more difficult for him to grasp, so they work with him until he gets it. I really appreciate their efforts and I look forward to a great school year!

Lincoln is a school that has bad discipline problems. The principal let the students and parents run the school. The principal also doesn't know how to budget state funded money.

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.
