Laton Joint Unified


The Laton Joint Unified school district in California serves students from elementary through high school, with 4 schools including 1 elementary, 1 middle, 1 high, and 1 alternative school. The district faces challenges, with its schools consistently underperforming state averages on standardized tests, high rates of chronic absenteeism, and a predominantly low-income student population.

The standout schools in the district are Laton Online Academy, an alternative school with 0% chronic absenteeism and the lowest percentage of free/reduced lunch recipients, and Laton High School, which has the highest 4-year graduation rate at 94.7% and the lowest dropout rate at 0.0%. However, the high school also has the lowest proficiency rates on state assessments, with only 25% of 11th graders proficient in English Language Arts and 12.5% in Math, compared to state averages of 55.41% and 27.36% respectively.

Across the district, the schools face significant socioeconomic challenges, with 60-84% of students eligible for free or reduced-price lunch. Addressing the root causes of chronic absenteeism, particularly at Laton High School where the rate is 18.6%, and implementing targeted interventions to improve academic performance will be crucial for the Laton Joint Unified district to better support its students.
