The Louisiana Department of Education says 10 Caddo Parish schools have been removed from the Academically Unacceptable Schools report.
Caddo Schools that were in AUS and are no longer failing are:
Booker T. Washington New Technology High School
Green Oaks Performing Arts Academy
Sunset Acres Elementary
Huntington High School
Turner Elementary/6th Grade Academy
Cherokee Park Elementary
Caddo Heights Math/Science Elementary
E. B. Williams Stoner Hill Elementary
Barret Paideia Academy
Caddo Superintendent Dr. Dawkins states, "I would like to congratulate these schools for their outstanding work. This is evidence that the principals, teachers, staff and students have been working hard and no longer will have this unacceptable label."
There are still 15 Caddo schools on the Academically Unacceptable Schools list:
Caddo Middle Career and Technology
Alexander (Alternative School)
Shreveport Job Corps
Academic Recovery Ombudsman
Dr. Dawkins also said, "Although I am happy to see schools come out of AUS, work must continue to be done to address the remaining schools. A focus of assessment and evaluation will continue at these schools. Everything at the school level revolves around the increase in student achievement and that must happen at these schools."
