Based on the Cumulative Performance Indices (CPI), LPS performed better than the state in the African American, Hispanic/Latino, Title I and ELL/Former ELL (combined) subgroup categories. Here we see that Female students performed better than Males with a higher percentage in the advanced and proficient categories. Additionally, this data indicates that half of all Students with Disabilities received a 'Warning/Failing' grade on the ELA exam. Not surpprisingly, the breakdowns differed at the individual school level. At Cobbet, for example, 33% of African American students were proficient (excluding the advanced category) in ELA while 82% were proficient at Aborn. At Classical, 91% of Non-Low Income students achieved an advanced or proficient score.
In 3rd Grade Reading, which has been pinpointed as a marker for future academic success, 58% of White students were proficient or better while 41% of African American/Black students, 40% of Asian students, 32% of Hispanic/Latino students were proficient or better.
