SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENTS
Dear Lycée Families,

On November 6, the LDOE will release the 2018-19 School Performance Scores (SPS), commonly referred to as the school letter grade. Students, teachers, parents and administrators worked hard last year and we expect good news, given the strength of our LEAP scores. The letter grade indicates how schools and students are measured, and this measure has been changing. Since Lycée first tested its students in 2013, changes have occurred yearly, both in testing for students and measurements for schools, with the goal of raising performance standards.

We will communicate in detail as soon as scores are available.
