Sugar-Salem Online

Summary:

Sugar-Salem Online is an alternative public virtual school serving grades K-12 in Sugar-Salem Joint District, which is ranked 21 out of 56 districts in Idaho and has a 3-star rating. With 314 students enrolled, the school has a diverse racial makeup, with 82.48% White and 9.55% Hispanic students.

While Sugar-Salem Online's 4-year graduation rate of 60.0% is lower than the state average, the school's students outperform their peers in the district and state in English Language Arts, particularly in 7th grade. However, they struggle in Math, performing below average across grades 6-8. The school's high student-teacher ratio of 39.8 may contribute to these academic challenges, as teachers have less time to provide individualized attention and support.

To improve, Sugar-Salem Online could examine its Math curriculum and instructional practices, and consider ways to address the high student-teacher ratio, such as through additional staffing or adjustments to the virtual learning model. Collecting and reporting data on free/reduced lunch rates would also provide valuable insights into the school's student population and potential socioeconomic factors influencing performance.

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.
