School improvement list

Posted By on Fri, Oct 9, 2009 at 11:38 AM

The state Education Department today released the annual list of schools falling short in various areas in showing sufficient progress of students as measured by test results. In time, districts that fail to achieve standards can be taken over by the state.

The measurements evaluate individual schools as well as districts. A quick glance indicates a rise in the number of schools at various stages of the improvement monitoring process -- from 375 to 407 of almost 1,200 schools.  The number of districts on the list held steady at 25. It includes the three public school districts in Pulaski County.

Here's the school-by-school list.

This is the Education Department overview news release.

  • Trump immigration protest at LR: Quick and fierce

    It was not even 24 hours ago that Sophia Said, director of the Interfaith Center; City Director Kathy Webb and others decided to organize a protest today of Donald Trump's executive order that has left people from Muslim countries languishing in airports or unable to come to the US at all — people with visas, green cards,a  post-doc graduate student en route to Harvard, Google employees abroad, families. I got the message today before noon; others didn't find out until it was going on. But however folks found out, they turned out in huge numbers, more than thousand men, women and children, on the grounds of the state Capitol to listen to speakers from all faiths and many countries.
