Academically Unacceptable Schools: 10 Caddo Schools removed from list

Posted: Updated:

 

The Louisiana Department of Education released the Academically Unacceptable Schools (AUS) list today and Caddo had 10 schools that were removed from the AUS list.  The result is a decrease from 22 Academically Unacceptable Schools for the 2011-12 school year to 15 Academically Unacceptable Schools for the 2012-13 school year.  Of the 15 AUS schools, four are Alternative Schools.  Caddo Schools that were in AUS and are no longer failing are:  Booker T. Washington New Technology High School, Green Oaks Performing Arts Academy, Sunset Acres Elementary, Huntington High School, Turner Elementary/6th Grade Academy, Cherokee Park Elementary, Caddo Heights Math/Science Elementary, Creswell Elementary, E. B. Williams Stoner Hill Elementary, and Barret Paideia Academy.  Caddo Superintendent Dr. Dawkins states, "I would like to congratulate these schools for their outstanding work.  This is evidence that the principals, teachers, staff and students have been working hard and no longer will have this unacceptable label."


Based upon the 2012-13 Academically Unacceptable Schools list, the 15 AUS Caddo schools are: Atkins Elementary, Fair Park, Caddo Middle Career and Technology, Lakeshore, Mooretown, Queensborough, Werner Park, Westwood, Woodlawn, Midway, Newton Smith, Alexander (Alternative School), Shreveport Job Corps (Alternative School), Academic Recovery Ombudsman (Alternative School), and Community Ombudsman (Alternative School).  Dr. Dawkins continues, "Although I am happy to see schools come out of AUS, work must continue to be done to address the remaining schools.  A focus of assessment and evaluation will continue at these schools.  Everything at the school level revolves around the increase in student achievement and that must happen at these schools."
