Elementary Schools in Killingly School District


Summary:

The Killingly School District in Connecticut is home to two elementary schools, Killingly Memorial School and Killingly Central School, both of which serve students from kindergarten through 4th grade. However, the analysis reveals that these schools are consistently underperforming compared to the state average on key metrics such as English Language Arts and Mathematics proficiency rates.

Both Killingly Memorial School and Killingly Central School have received low statewide rankings and SchoolDigger ratings, indicating that they are struggling to meet academic standards. The schools' proficiency rates in core subjects are significantly below the state average, with Killingly Memorial School's 3rd and 4th-grade proficiency rates ranging from 23.2% to 31.2%, compared to the state averages of 45.5% to 48.8%. This suggests a systemic issue within the district that may require further investigation and targeted interventions.

The high percentages of students eligible for free or reduced-price lunch at both schools, 55.83% at Killingly Memorial School and 52.11% at Killingly Central School, indicate that the district is facing significant socioeconomic challenges. This could be a contributing factor to the schools' lower academic performance and may require additional support and resources to address the needs of these students. Additionally, the difference in spending per student between the two schools may suggest an imbalance in resource allocation within the district, which could also be impacting student outcomes.
