Great News: Performance Soars!
These gains are truly significant and show the reforms underway are working.
- New Orleans improved more than the state across all grades and subjects.
- New Orleans showed real growth in the percentage of students passing the promotional high-stakes LEAP and GEE tests.
- Significantly more students met the state proficiency goal of Basic or Above.
This edition of Leslie’s Notebook will focus on the high stakes tests – 4th and 8th grade English and Math LEAP tests, along with the Graduation Exit Exam – to highlight the tremendous improvement both this year and since the state took over the schools in 2006.
