Mark Twain Union Elementary


The Mark Twain Union Elementary school district in California serves three elementary schools: Mark Twain Elementary, Copperopolis Elementary, and Learners Empowered Academic Progress (LEAP). While the district faces challenges with low academic proficiency and high chronic absenteeism, Copperopolis Elementary stands out as a high-performing school, with stronger proficiency rates in English Language Arts and Mathematics compared to district and state averages.

The data reveals that Copperopolis Elementary has the highest academic performance in the district, particularly in grades 3-6. For example, in 6th grade English Language Arts, Copperopolis had a 45% proficiency rate, compared to the district's 31.52% and the state's 44.16%. In contrast, Mark Twain Elementary and LEAP struggle with lower proficiency rates across all subjects and grade levels.

Chronic absenteeism is a significant concern across the district, with rates ranging from 33.5% at Mark Twain Elementary to 52.9% at LEAP, far exceeding the state average. Additionally, the district has high rates of students eligible for free or reduced-price lunch, suggesting a significant proportion of economically disadvantaged students, which may be a contributing factor to the academic and attendance challenges observed.
