Mildred Perkins Elementary

Summary:

Mildred Perkins Elementary is a public elementary school in Modesto, California, serving 405 students from kindergarten to 5th grade. The school is part of the Salida Union Elementary School District, which has a 3-star rating from SchoolDigger.

Mildred Perkins Elementary faces significant challenges, particularly in the areas of chronic absenteeism and academic performance. The school has experienced a sharp increase in chronic absenteeism, rising from 9.6% in 2018-2019 to 25.7% in 2022-2023, which is notably higher than the district and state averages. Academically, the school's proficiency rates in Smarter Balanced Assessments for English Language Arts and Mathematics are generally lower than the district and state averages, especially in 5th grade. For example, in 5th grade English Language Arts, Mildred Perkins Elementary had a 15.63% proficiency rate, compared to 41.12% for the district and 46.69% for the state.

The school's high percentage of students from low socioeconomic backgrounds, with 74.32% qualifying for free or reduced-price lunch, may be a contributing factor to the academic challenges. Additionally, the school's racial and ethnic diversity, with a majority Hispanic student population, may require specialized instructional approaches and support to ensure all students are succeeding. Addressing these issues through targeted interventions, support, and a focus on equity and inclusion could be key to improving outcomes for the students at Mildred Perkins Elementary.

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.
