MARTIN COUNTY’S ONLY COUNTY SEAT NEWSPAPER

LOOGOOTEE COMMUNITY SCHOOLS 2019 ANNUAL PERFORMANCE REPORT
2019 School Corporation
Annual Performance Report (APR)
General Explanations
The APR is a report on the performance of schools and school corporations (districts) in your area. The goal
is to provide information regarding the
progress schools are making to help
students become college-and-career
ready. Where possible, this report contains three years of data to show trends – not just this year’s results. In
addition, the State Average is also
shown for comparison purposes. There
are additional indicators that are available on the Indiana Department of
Education’s Web site (compass.doe.
in.gov), including data broken out by
different student subgroups, such as
race, gender, income level and special
education.
Indiana educators and citizens have
developed higher academic standards
for all students. These standards are
necessary to prepare Indiana students
to be successful in life, whether they go
directly to higher education or to the
workplace. The scores for ILEARN/
ISTEP+ are listed under each school to
reflect student progress toward those
standards. For high schools, you also
will see graduation rates and the percentage of graduates who plan to go on
to college.
Other important data are provided,
such as average attendance rates and
indicators of school safety, including
expulsions and suspensions. Also included is information about your school corporation, such as how much is
spent, on average, for each student;
how much teachers are paid; and the
percentage of corporation students
who are in special education classes or
gifted and talented classes.
