Boyd Elementary School

Summary:

Boyd Elementary School is a public elementary school in Omaha, Nebraska, serving 555 students in grades PK-5. The school is part of the Omaha Public Schools district, which is ranked 205 out of 212 districts in Nebraska and has a 0-star rating from SchoolDigger. Over the past few years, Boyd Elementary has consistently ranked in the bottom half of Nebraska elementary schools, with a ranking between 347 and 419 out of around 450-480 schools.

Boyd Elementary has a significantly more diverse student population compared to nearby schools, with a racial breakdown of 19.46% White, 32.97% African American, 13.87% Hispanic, 25.23% Asian, and 8.47% other races. However, the school's academic performance, as measured by the percentage of students proficient or better in NSCAS assessments, is consistently lower than the Omaha Public Schools district average and the state of Nebraska average across all grade levels and subjects. For example, in 2022-2023, only 32-46% of Boyd students were proficient in English Language Arts and Mathematics, compared to 37-63% for the district and 55-65% for the state. Additionally, 65.21% of Boyd students qualify for free or reduced-price lunch, which is significantly higher than the nearby schools.

Despite the relatively high per-student spending of $15,488 in the 2022-2023 school year, which is higher than the nearby schools in the Omaha Public Schools district, Boyd Elementary has consistently struggled to improve student outcomes. This suggests that the school may need to re-evaluate its instructional strategies and resource allocation to better support the unique needs of its diverse student population and address the challenges posed by the high percentage of students from low-income families.

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.
