District Composite Report: Vernon Parish. 2002-2003
Louisiana State Department of Education
This District Composite Report includes information about Vernon Parish. Up to six years of data (the current year and the five previous years where available) are presented in the District Composite Report. Each year, this report is updated by adding the most current year's data and deleting the data that are more than six years old. Incorporating longitudinal data in the District Composite Report enables policy makers to anticipate changes in educational outcomes, not just describe them (Smith, 1988). However, longitudinal reporting does complicate the presentation of data. This report contains the following sections: (1) district summary; (2) school characteristics and accountability information; (3) student participation; (4) student achievement; and (5) college readiness. This document contains 19 tables and a glossary of frequently used terms.
Descriptors: School Districts, Student Participation, Accountability, Institutional Characteristics, Academic Achievement, State Standards, Achievement Tests, College Preparation, Scores, Educational Indicators
