The school is averge for the shools in the area and they do have some good teachers ( some better than others). However they have a new principal that changes the school policy day by day without aproval from the shcoolboard and without any notice to the parents. She sends a copy of the policy to parents the first of shcool stating that parents shoulc be out of the halls by 07:55, then two weeks later on a Monday morning has the police arrest parents that enter the hall at shcool stating to the police her policy is no parents are allowed in the school. She also said she did not have to notify anyone of the change. The flowwing day she sends notes home that the school request parents not be in the halls between 8-10AM becaaause of reading block. Five dayslater she has a meeting with some of the parents that did not agree with her and told them they were welcome to walk the childern to class if they wanted. However two days later I try to walk my 5 year old in and am told I can not do this and it is 7:30AM. The school board has not made any changes to the policy that parents are allowed in the halls until 7:55.

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.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Louisiana used the Louisiana Educational Assessment Program for the 21st Century (LEAP 21) to assess students in grades 4 and 8 in math, English language arts, science and social studies. The LEAP 21 is a standards-based test, which means it measures specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Louisiana. The goal is for all students to score at or above basic on the test.

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.
