Homeconnection

Summary:

Homeconnection is an alternative public school in Oak Harbor School District, serving 124 students in grades K-12. While the district is ranked 37th out of 249 in Washington and has a 4-star rating, Homeconnection stands out with its exceptional academic performance, particularly in English Language Arts (ELA) and Science.

Homeconnection significantly outperforms the district and state in ELA proficiency, with 78.57% of students proficient or better compared to 57.83% for the district and 52.86% for the state. In 6th and 7th grade ELA, the school achieves a remarkable 100% proficiency rate. However, the school lags behind in Math proficiency, with only 32.14% of students proficient or better, compared to 42.46% for the district and 41.04% for the state. In Science, Homeconnection shines, with 81.82% of students proficient or better, outpacing the district (55.23%) and state (48.75%).

Homeconnection's performance is notably stronger than nearby alternative schools, such as Aspire Academy and Mount Vernon Special Educational, which serve different student populations and have lower overall academic achievement. This suggests that Homeconnection may be providing a more effective educational experience for its students. However, the school's relative weakness in Math and the fluctuations in its student-teacher ratio warrant further investigation and potential improvements to ensure a well-rounded and consistently supportive learning environment for all its students.

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.
