Catahoula Parish School District Proud of District Performance Score

Recently, the Louisiana Department of Education released the 2017-2018 School and District Performance Scores. Catahoula Parish proudly maintained a District Performance Score Letter Grade of “B” for the third consecutive year. No schools within the district received an “Academically Unacceptable Status” (AUS). In fact, four of the six schools maintained or improved their SPS Letter Grade, with Block High School increasing to a Letter Grade of “B”. Special recognition also goes to Central High School and Jonesville Elementary School who have received “Top Gains” status. Additionally, Sicily Island High School is recognized as an “Equity Honoree”. For the second consecutive year, Central High School has received a Letter Grade of “A”. Other schools’ Letter Grades are as follows: Harrisonburg High School with a “B”; Jonesville Elementary School with a “C”; Jonesville Jr. High School with a “D”, and Sicily Island High School with a “B”.

Devoted leadership and hard work have continued to drive the academic excellence exhibited by Catahoula Parish Schools. With the new accountability system, the implementation of the Louisiana State Standards, the Compass evaluation system, and the new assessments (LEAP 2025), schools have much more work to do. However, Catahoula Parish School District’s faculty, staff, parents, and students are prepared for the challenge!
