Dry Creek Connections Academy

Summary:

Dry Creek Connections Academy is a public virtual elementary school serving grades K-8 in the Dry Creek Joint Elementary District, with a diverse student population of 119 students.

While Dry Creek Connections Academy generally performs better than the district and state averages on standardized tests, particularly in English Language Arts, the school faces some unique challenges. It has a significantly higher chronic absenteeism rate (41.3%) compared to nearby traditional public schools like Coyote Ridge Elementary (18.6%), Antelope Meadows Elementary (26.6%), and Heritage Oak Elementary (15.6%). Additionally, the school's math performance lags behind the district and state averages, despite its strong English Language Arts scores. However, Dry Creek Connections Academy has a lower student-teacher ratio (16.5) compared to the nearby traditional public schools, which range from 19 to 27.4 students per teacher.

Dry Creek Connections Academy has maintained a 4-star rating from SchoolDigger for the past three school years, indicating consistent academic performance. The school's performance on assessments for specific student subgroups, such as female students and low-socioeconomic status students, is generally strong, with rankings in the top quartile of California elementary schools. However, the school's high chronic absenteeism rate may reflect the unique challenges faced by virtual schools in maintaining student engagement and attendance, which could impact academic performance.

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.
