Deltona Lakes Elementary School

Summary:

Deltona Lakes Elementary School is a public elementary school in Deltona, Florida, serving 706 students in grades PK-5. The school is part of the Volusia school district, which is ranked 36 out of 68 districts in Florida and has a 2-star rating from SchoolDigger.

Deltona Lakes Elementary has a more diverse student population compared to nearby schools, with a higher percentage of Hispanic students (48.16%) and lower percentage of White students (33.85%). The school also faces challenges, including consistently higher chronic absenteeism rates, ranging from 17.3% in 2019-2020 to 35.7% in 2022-2023, significantly above the Volusia district and state averages. Deltona Lakes' test scores are generally lower than the Volusia district and state averages across all grade levels and subjects, with the school's 3rd-grade English Language Arts (ELA) proficiency rate at 59% in 2023-2024, compared to 54% for Volusia and 55% for Florida. Additionally, Deltona Lakes has a high percentage of students receiving free or reduced-price lunch, ranging from 63.07% to 76.62% over the past few years, indicating a higher proportion of economically disadvantaged students.

While Deltona Lakes has lower test scores than the Volusia district and state averages, it performs better than some nearby schools, such as Friendship Elementary and Sunrise Elementary, which have even lower proficiency rates across multiple grade levels and subjects. However, Deltona Lakes' chronic absenteeism rates are significantly higher than the nearby schools, which is an area of concern that may be impacting the school's academic performance. The school's diverse student population, relatively low student-teacher ratio, and higher per-student spending may be strengths that could be leveraged to improve academic outcomes, but addressing the chronic absenteeism issue and providing targeted interventions and support for the school's student population will be key focus areas for the school's improvement efforts.

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.
