Charles Peck Elementary

Summary:

Charles Peck Elementary is a public elementary school in Carmichael, California, serving students from kindergarten to 5th grade as part of the San Juan Unified School District. The school faces significant challenges, with high chronic absenteeism, low academic performance, and a student population that is predominantly from low-socioeconomic backgrounds.

Charles Peck Elementary has experienced a concerning increase in chronic absenteeism, rising from 21.9% in 2018-2019 to 46.1% in 2022-2023, which is notably higher than nearby schools like Carmichael Elementary (39.7%), Skycrest Elementary (29.8%), and Arlington Heights Elementary (37.2%). Academically, the school consistently underperforms compared to the district and the state, with only 33.11% of students proficient or better in English Language Arts/Literacy and just 9.87% proficient or better in Mathematics, significantly lower than the district and state averages.

Charles Peck Elementary has a diverse student population, with a higher percentage of Hispanic and African American students compared to nearby schools. However, the school also has a high percentage of students from low-socioeconomic backgrounds, with 80.72% qualifying for free or reduced-price lunch, much higher than schools like Harry Dewey Fundamental Elementary (37.2%) and Cambridge Heights Elementary. The school's declining performance and achievement gaps among subgroups suggest the need for targeted interventions and support to improve student outcomes and close the achievement gap.

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.
