Congratulations to LCIS on its strong academic growth!
Last week, we received preliminary 2016 performance frameworks from the state. These are the first performance ratings we have received since the state implemented new assessments in 2014-15. We are thrilled to announce that Lake County Intermediate School, which serves grades 3-6, raised its performance level to Improvement. As a result, the school is no longer on the state’s accountability watch list. This rise in the school’s academic status means that the school is doing a better job of serving its students and driving academic growth.
We’re incredibly proud of LCIS and are so happy that the Colorado Department of Education’s accreditation process has caught up with the excellent work the staff and students are doing on a daily basis. This school is leading our efforts to raise academic performance for Lake County students, and we are thrilled that those efforts are achieving such tangible results.
Students at LCIS demonstrated academic growth above the state average in many grades, subject areas and subgroups. The fact that students of all different backgrounds and learning needs are showing strong growth from 2015 to 2016 is really exciting. This shows that our reforms are reaching all students. We believe in the potential and promise of every single student in our district. These growth results demonstrate in a very tangible way our students’ progress in reaching that potential. Congratulations to LCIS leadership, staff and students on this huge accomplishment!
