Hodgkins Elementary School

Summary:

Hodgkins Elementary School is a public elementary school serving grades PK-6 in Hodgkins, Illinois, with a student population of 145 as of the 2022-2023 school year. The school faces several challenges, including a significantly higher percentage of Hispanic students (73.1%) compared to nearby schools, lower academic performance, and higher chronic absenteeism rates.

Hodgkins Elementary School's academic performance is concerning, with proficiency rates in English Language Arts and Mathematics below 50% for most grade levels, in contrast to the higher-performing nearby schools like Spring Ave Elementary and Seventh Ave Elementary. The school has also experienced a sharp increase in chronic absenteeism, rising from 9.7% in 2019-2020 to 41.5% in 2022-2023, which is significantly higher than the surrounding schools. Additionally, Hodgkins Elementary School has a high percentage of students (81.38%) receiving free or reduced-price lunch, indicating a higher proportion of students from low-income families compared to the nearby schools.

Despite these challenges, Hodgkins Elementary School's Hispanic and low-socioeconomic status student subgroups perform relatively better compared to the overall school performance, ranking in the top half of Illinois elementary schools in some years. This suggests that targeted interventions and support for these subgroups may be beneficial. To address the school's issues, collaboration with the community and a focus on resource allocation and targeted interventions could be crucial in improving the educational outcomes for the students at Hodgkins Elementary School.

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.
