Lagonda Elementary School

Summary:

Lagonda Elementary School is a public K-6 school in the Springfield City School District in Springfield, Ohio, serving a diverse student population of 363. Despite serving the community, the school has consistently underperformed, ranking in the bottom 20% of Ohio elementary schools over the past decade.

Lagonda Elementary faces significant challenges, including consistently low academic performance, wide achievement gaps between student subgroups, and high chronic absenteeism rates reaching as high as 64%. Proficiency rates on state tests are well below state and district averages across all grade levels and subjects, with the 5th-grade science proficiency rate at just 11.9% compared to the state average of 63.9%. While nearby schools like Mann Elementary outperform Lagonda, the data suggests that factors beyond student demographics, such as school leadership and resource allocation, may be contributing to the school's struggles.

Addressing Lagonda's challenges will require a comprehensive, data-driven approach focused on improving instruction, supporting struggling student groups, and tackling the root causes of chronic absenteeism. By learning from higher-performing nearby schools and identifying bright spots within the school, the Springfield City School District has an opportunity to help Lagonda make meaningful progress in improving overall student outcomes.

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.
