Rose E Krug Elementary School

Summary:

Rose E Krug Elementary School is a public elementary school serving grades PK-5 in Aurora, Illinois, with a student population of 282 and is part of the Aurora East Unified School District 131, which is ranked 784 out of 823 districts in Illinois and has a 0-star rating from SchoolDigger.

Despite the school's high per-student spending of $20,756 in the 2022-2023 school year, Rose E Krug Elementary consistently ranks in the bottom 10% of Illinois elementary schools, with only 2.6% of 3rd graders proficient or better in English Language Arts and Mathematics, compared to the state averages of 28.8% and 33%, respectively. The school also faces challenges with high chronic absenteeism rates, ranging from 5.4% to 21.3% over the past few years, and a predominantly Hispanic student population (79.08%) from low-socioeconomic backgrounds (73.4% qualify for free or reduced-price lunch).

Interestingly, nearby schools within the same Aurora East Unified School District 131 also struggle academically, while some schools in the Aurora West Unified School District 129, such as Nicholson Elementary School, perform slightly better, suggesting that district-level factors may play a role in student outcomes. Despite the school's high spending, the lack of improvement in academic performance over the past decade indicates the need for a comprehensive, data-driven approach to address the root causes of these issues and implement effective interventions to support student success.

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.
