Dear Lancer Families,

Thank you for your partnership this school year. We are proud of the strong start our students have had this fall. Specifically, we are proud of how we continue to improve at closing achievement gaps in English Language Arts and Math. We are very proud that we are closing graduation rate gaps. We are working hard to increase our overall graduation rate, as well. Our hard work to build relationships with students and families, and support students to earn credits towards graduation is making a big difference.
We notice that we still have a lot of work to do. Our overall student achievement scores in English Language Arts and Mathematics are not yet where we want them to be. We also notice that more than 13% of Lancers attended less that 84% of school days. It is important for us to partner with families and students to improve attendance. It is critically important that students attend class on time to get the most out of every learning opportunity!
