Roosevelt Elementary

Summary:

Roosevelt Elementary is a public K-8 school in Lindsay, California, serving a predominantly Hispanic student population of 474 students. While part of the Lindsay Unified School District, Roosevelt Elementary stands out with some concerning metrics compared to nearby schools.

Roosevelt Elementary has a significantly higher chronic absenteeism rate of 22.1%, well above other local schools like Lincoln Elementary (20.9%) and Washington Elementary (9.1%). The school's test scores also lag behind, with only 29.36% of students proficient in English Language Arts/Literacy, compared to 39.82% for the district and 46.66% statewide. When looking at specific student subgroups, Roosevelt ranks in the bottom quarter of California elementary schools for Hispanic, English Language Learner, and low-income students.

These challenges may stem from Roosevelt's unique demographics - the school has a 96.62% Hispanic student population, much higher than nearby schools. Additionally, 78.27% of Roosevelt students qualify for free or reduced-price lunch, indicating high levels of economic disadvantage. With a relatively high student-teacher ratio of 23.7, Roosevelt may struggle to provide the individual attention and support needed to address the specific needs of its student population. Targeted interventions and additional resources will likely be crucial for improving outcomes at this school.

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.
