For example, in 3rd grade ELA, only 19.35% of Sheldon students scored proficient or better, compared to the state average of 48.91%. Additionally, nearly 40% of Sheldon students receive free or reduced-price lunch, indicating a high level of economic disadvantage among the student population.

Addressing the academic achievement gaps, particularly in core subjects, and supporting the economically disadvantaged student population should be top priorities for the district and school leadership.
