School Report Card Grades Are In

Dear Ehret Families,

 

Ehret received its 2019 state report card from the Louisiana Department of Education today. I am excited to announce that John Ehret High is now a B rated school, after improving by a letter grade. 

 

This growth would not be possible without the dedicated support of our teachers, staff, students, and families. This progress is just the start of where we are going together as a school family. 

 

Among the highlights from this year’s report card: 

 

  • We achieved an “A” for graduation, which means we are graduating the majority of our students within four years.
  • We also achieved an “A” for strength of diploma, meaning not only are we graduating students on time, we are better preparing them for a career or college because they’re walking out with CTE, CLEP, or Dual Enrollment credits.

 

The 2019 School and District Performance Scores released by the LDOE reflect student outcomes for the 2018-19 school year. Every year, schools and school systems in Louisiana receive report cards with school performance scores and corresponding A-F letter grades. The report cards communicate how well schools are preparing students for the next grade level by examining student performance measures, like how students score on state assessments, how many students are graduating each year or how many students are earning early college credit. Over time, the state has raised the bar for each of these measurements. The report card also details how well schools are helping students, regardless of where they start at the beginning of the year, progress toward mastering key concepts and skills.

 

It’s an exciting time at John Ehret High, and I am proud to work alongside you to keep pushing hard for each and every one of our students. Let’s keep up this momentum, and thank you for all you do to support our students.

 

Wesley Taylor, Principal
