Birdielee V. Bright Elementary

Summary:

Birdielee V. Bright Elementary is a public elementary school in Los Angeles, California, serving students from kindergarten to 5th grade. With a diverse student population that is predominantly Hispanic and African American, the school is part of the Los Angeles Unified School District.

While Birdielee V. Bright Elementary has consistently ranked in the bottom half of California elementary schools, it has shown promising performance for specific student subgroups, such as African American and Hispanic students, who rank in the top half or top quarter of the state. However, the school has experienced a significant increase in chronic absenteeism, rising from 12.7% in 2017-2018 to 41.9% in 2021-2022, which is a concerning trend. Compared to nearby schools like Mid-City's Prescott School of Enriched Sciences, Birdielee V. Bright Elementary has a lower overall performance ranking.

The high percentage of students (over 90%) receiving free or reduced-price lunch at Birdielee V. Bright Elementary and the surrounding schools highlights the significant socioeconomic challenges faced by these communities. Addressing the needs of students from low-income backgrounds, such as providing additional academic and social-emotional support, will be crucial for improving overall school performance and ensuring equitable opportunities for all 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.
