LCSD Receives a “B” Accountability Rating

Lauderdale Co., MS - The Mississippi State Board of Education (SBE) has approved final letter grades for schools and districts based on Mississippi’s A-F accountability system. This system evaluates how schools and districts performed during the 2017-18 school year. The Lauderdale County School District received a “B” rating. Accountability grades are based, in part, on how well students perform and progress from year to year on the Mississippi Academic Assessment Program (MAAP) tests for English language arts (ELA) and Mathematics. These tests are aligned to the Mississippi College and Career Ready Standards and are administered annually to students in grades 3-8 and in high school.

Here’s a breakdown of the accountability rating results for LCSD’s 12 schools:

  • 3 received an “A” rating

  • 4 received “B” ratings

  • 5 received “C” ratings

In order to continue our success LCSD is implementing several strategies which include:

  • Seeking the best instructional materials and authentic assessments to help each student grow to his/her potential.

- Increasing access to accelerated courses and Career and Technical Education

  Programs.

  • Expanding partnerships with our community colleges.

  • Effectively communicating with all stakeholders.

Respectfully,
Andrea Williams
