Database: Louisiana high schools improve on every measure of student achievement

BATON ROUGE, LA (WVUE) - This information is from the Louisiana Department of Education:

The Louisiana Department of Education today released school report cards for high schools containing only grades 9-12 for the 2014-2015 school year, continuing the state's long-term transition to higher expectations.

Report cards indicate that schools made progress in every measure the state uses to assess high school quality: end-of-course tests; ACT; graduation rate; and credentialing programs such as Advanced Placement courses and tests, dual enrollment courses, and Jump Start courses and credentials.

More schools also demonstrated progress with low-achieving students due to increased reading and math scores with previously low-achieving students and changes in BESE policy.
