Lafayette Parish School System Recognized as a National and Regional Leader in Student Success

With the release of state test results by the Louisiana Department of Education, Lafayette Parish is recognized as one of Top Districts for YOY Growth in LEAP (Louisiana Education Assessment Program). Of the six school districts with 30,000 or more students, the Lafayette Parish School System (LPSS) ranks first in improving the percentage of students in grades 3-8 achieving master’s degrees or higher (MAS+) in state assessments. LPSS is also the year-over-year change leader among Regions IV and V in improving the percentage of students in grades 3-8 achieving MAS+.

In addition, two schools in Lafayette Parish received special recognition. Early College Academy is ranked in the top 10 of all schools in Louisiana for 2022 LEAP performance in MAS+, and Myrtle Place Elementary is the top school in the state for year-over-year improvement in LEAP.

“These outstanding results from LEAP are a testament to the hard work and dedication of our educators and school leaders who have continued to meet the many challenges of the past few years,” said LPSS Superintendent Irma Trosclair. “Thanks to their efforts, an increasing number of students have not only recovered learning, but they have surpassed pre-Covid assessment performance. As we prepare for back to school, it is important that the community recognizes the value of student attendance and family engagement in learning.

Compared to the previous year, elementary, middle and high school students in the LPSS improved performance on state assessments. Recently released scores from the 2022 LEAP Spring Testing Cycle show an increase in all four subjects (Mathematics, English Language Arts [ELA]science and social studies) for students in grades 3-8, as well as all tested high school courses (Algebra I, Geometry, English I, English II, Biology, and US History).

Individual student results can be viewed by parents on the LPSS website. A interpretation guide to better understand the results, see the Louisiana Department of Education website. This is the first in a series of planned communications celebrating the details of SY2122 student success.
