Butler Elementary School

Summary:

Butler Elementary School is a public elementary school serving 257 students in grades K-5 in the Clear Fork Valley Local School District in Butler, Ohio. The school has a predominantly White student population (95.33%) and has been rated 3 out of 5 stars by SchoolDigger for the 2022-2023 school year.

Butler Elementary stands out for its strong academic performance, consistently outperforming the state average on Ohio state tests across multiple grade levels and subjects. In 2022-2023, the school had higher proficiency rates than the state in 5th grade science, 3rd-5th grade math, and 3rd-5th grade English language arts. The school also ranks very highly for its performance with special education students and low-socioeconomic status students, indicating strong support and programming for these student groups. Additionally, Butler Elementary has maintained a chronic absenteeism rate below 4% in recent years, significantly lower than the state average and many nearby schools.

Compared to the nearby Bellville Elementary, also in the Clear Fork Valley Local district, Butler Elementary has a higher percentage of White students but lower academic performance on state tests in most subjects and grade levels. However, Butler Elementary's student-teacher ratio of 15:1 is lower than Bellville's 15.8:1, which may contribute to its stronger academic outcomes. While Butler Elementary outperforms the state averages, it lags behind the Clear Fork Valley Local district as a whole on many state test metrics, suggesting there may be room for improvement. Compared to more economically disadvantaged schools like Woodland Elementary and Madison South Elementary in the Mansfield City area, Butler Elementary's lower free/reduced lunch rate and higher academic performance highlights the impact of socioeconomic factors on student achievement.

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.
