F B Mccord Elementary School

Summary:

F B Mccord Elementary School is a public elementary school serving 254 students in grades K-5 in Burbank, Illinois, which is part of the Burbank School District 111. The school faces significant challenges, with consistently underperforming academic results, high chronic absenteeism, and a student population that is predominantly from low-socioeconomic backgrounds.

F B Mccord Elementary School's academic performance is a major concern, with only 11.6% of 3rd graders, 18.2% of 4th graders, and 21.9% of 5th graders proficient or better in English Language Arts, compared to district averages of 23.8%, 26.7%, and 21%, respectively. The school's Math performance is also below district and state averages. Additionally, the school has a significantly higher chronic absenteeism rate of 20.9%, compared to the state average of 17.5%. The school's high percentage of students qualifying for free or reduced-price lunch, at 68.11%, indicates that it serves a population with greater economic challenges.

While the nearby Harry E Fry School and Edward J Tobin Elementary School within the Burbank School District 111 also struggle academically, they perform better than F B Mccord Elementary School in both English Language Arts and Mathematics. This suggests that there may be opportunities for F B Mccord to learn from the practices and strategies of its higher-performing peers. However, the school's declining performance over the years, with a drop from a 4-star rating to a 2-star rating, indicates that significant changes are needed to improve outcomes for its students, particularly for its female, White, and Hispanic student populations.

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.
