|CEC placed on state AUS list|
]The Concordia Education Center (CEC) in Ferriday -- commonly known as the "alternative school" -- has been placed on the Louisiana Department of Education's newly released list of "Academically Unacceptable Schools (AUS)" in the state.
Four other local schools were placed on an "Academic Watch" list.
Results of spring testing released by the Louisiana Department of Education last week (LDE) revealed more Louisiana students than ever are grade-level proficient. But a five-point boost in the minimum mark needed to avoid the AUS label placed more schools on the state's 2011 AUS list.
"We are very happy to report that we do not have any of our regular schools on the AUS list," said Dr. Paul Nelson, Director of Academic Programs for the Concordia Parish School Board. "The CEC like all alternative schools in the state is on that list. We are not happy with our scores districtwide and have a number of new things planned for the 2011-12 school year to help our schools improve."
Alternative schools provide educational services to students with academic and/or behavioral problems, many of whom have been either suspended or expelled.
The state education department also released its Academic Watch list of schools on July 25, which contained 153 schools statewide. Schools with a School Performance Score (SPS) of below 75 are included on that list, Nelson said.
While schools on the Academic Watch list do not currently face sanctions, the list provides schools with notice that they will fall into AUS status if they do not raise their SPS above 75.
Nelson said four parish schools on the watch list include Ferriday Lower Elementary, Ferriday Upper Elementary, Ferriday Junior High, and Ferriday High School.
