Lincoln-Sudbury District Report Card 2017

At the above link you will find the current District/School report card for Lincoln-Sudbury Regional High School as generated by the MA Department of Elementary and Secondary Education. Note that school and district data are the same because LS is a single school district.

The report card contains information about student enrollment, teacher qualifications, student achievement, accountability and the progress LS is making toward narrowing proficiency gaps for different groups of students.

Part I: Enrollment and Educator Data

Part II: MCAS Results by Subgroup by Grade and Subject

CPI: Massachusetts uses the 100-point Composite Performance Index (CPI) to measure progress towards the goal of narrowing proficiency gaps.

SGP: Each student who participated in the MCAS ELA or Mathematics tests in grade 10 and who also took the MCAS test in grade 8 in that subject receives a Student Growth Percentile (SGP) score.

Part III:  Accountability Data

Accountability and Assistance Level: Schools and districts are placed into one of five accountability and assistance levels (1-5), with the highest performing in Level 1 and lowest performing in Level 5.

School Percentile: This number shows the overall performance of LS relative to other high schools.

Cumulative Progress and Performance Index: The Cumulative PPI is a number that indicates our school’s progress toward narrowing proficiency gaps, or, in other words, helping all students reach proficiency and be prepared for success after high school. Massachusetts has set a goal of reducing proficiency gaps by half between the years 2011 and 2017. For a group of students to be considered to be making sufficient progress toward narrowing proficiency gaps, its Cumulative PPI must be 75 or higher.

Part IV: Massachusetts and Nationwide NAEP Results by Student Group

The last section of the report card shows how Massachusetts students are performing on the National Assessment of Educational Progress, a test that allows you to compare the performance of Massachusetts students to students across the nation or in other states.

One of our school goals since 2014 has been to reflect on our educational program to ensure equity and excellence for all students. As part of this goal we have been been examining student achievement data and studying and implementing models for academic interventions for students to provide assistance to students who are struggling academically.

Finally, you also have the right to request the following information about the qualifications of your child’s classroom teachers:

  • Whether your child’s teacher is licensed in the grade levels and subject areas they teach
  • Whether your child’s teacher is teaching under an emergency license or waiver
  • The college degree and major of your child’s teacher
  • Whether your child is provided services by paraprofessionals and, if so, their qualifications

10/27/17 press release

The Lincoln-Sudbury Regional High School (LSRHS) faculty, administration, staff and district School Committee are pleased to announce that LSRHS has been designated a Level 1 School and District by the Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education. The Accountability and Assistance level is a reflection of multiple indicators, primarily including student performance on the MCAS exam in English Language Arts, Mathematics and Science. The factors for determination are based on a 4-year weighted average of prior Progress and Performance Index results. LSRHS’s current index therefore reflects several years of consistent improvement on MCAS performance across target cohort groups. We are extremely proud of our students for their hard work and appreciate the long-standing dedicated efforts of the district’s faculty and staff to support this outcome.  We also express our gratitude our broader communities for supporting our efforts these past years to develop effective academic interventions to the benefit of all students.
