Rock Creek Elementary

Summary:

Rock Creek Elementary is a public elementary school in Auburn, California, serving students from kindergarten to 5th grade. With a student population that has become increasingly diverse in recent years, the school has faced some significant challenges in academic performance and student attendance.

Academically, Rock Creek Elementary has consistently underperformed compared to the Auburn Union Elementary District and the state of California, with only 29.06% of students proficient or better in English Language Arts and just 2.5% proficient or better in Science. This is in stark contrast to nearby schools like Northside Elementary and Skyridge Elementary, which significantly outperform Rock Creek in academic achievement. Additionally, the school has seen a troubling increase in chronic absenteeism, rising from 9.6% in 2018-2019 to 27.8% in 2022-2023, well above the state average.

Compounding these academic and attendance challenges, Rock Creek Elementary serves a high percentage of students from low-socioeconomic backgrounds, with 62.41% of students qualifying for free or reduced-price lunch. This, combined with the school's underperformance for specific student subgroups, such as Hispanic students and English Language Learners, suggests a need for targeted interventions and support to address the unique needs of the school's diverse population. By addressing these key areas of concern and implementing a comprehensive, data-driven approach, Rock Creek Elementary can work towards improving student outcomes and providing a high-quality education for all its students.

As you review the school rankings data, please be aware that some of the information from certain demographics is missing. The reason for this omission is that the data has been redacted from the source data itself due to low population samples in these specific demographic groups.

Redacting data from low population samples is a necessary step to ensure the reliability and accuracy of the results, as small sample sizes may not be representative of the broader population. Additionally, this measure helps protect the privacy of individuals belonging to these demographic groups.

About Students eligible for discounted/free lunch:

The National School Lunch Program (NSLP) provides low-cost or free meals to students in U.S. public and nonprofit private schools based on household income. Those with incomes below 130% of the poverty line receive free lunch, while those between 130% and 185% qualify for reduced-price lunch. The percentage of students receiving free or reduced-price lunch serves as a marker for poverty, as it reflects the socioeconomic status of families in a given school or district. A higher FRPL rate typically indicates a higher concentration of low-income families, suggesting that the school or district may face additional challenges in providing adequate resources and support for student success.

About Student-Teacher Ratio

Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
