Washington Unified Virtual Academy

Summary:

Washington Unified Virtual Academy is a small elementary school serving grades K-8 in West Sacramento, California, with just 83 students. Despite its low student-teacher ratio, the school faces significant challenges, including low academic performance, high chronic absenteeism, and a student population that is predominantly economically disadvantaged.

Compared to nearby schools, Washington Unified Virtual Academy stands out as the lowest-performing academically, with only 26.87% of students proficient or better in English Language Arts and just 11.94% proficient or better in Mathematics, far below the state averages. The school's high chronic absenteeism rate of 27.6% is also a major concern, as it likely contributes to the low academic achievement. Additionally, the school has an extremely high percentage of students (85.54%) receiving free or reduced-price lunch, indicating a high level of economic disadvantage among the student population.

While the school's virtual model and low student-teacher ratio may offer some advantages, these factors do not appear to be sufficient to overcome the significant challenges faced by the students at Stonegate Elementary, Southport Elementary, and other nearby schools in the Washington Unified district. Targeted interventions and support, as well as a careful evaluation of the virtual school model, may be necessary to improve outcomes for the students at Washington Unified Virtual Academy.

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.
