LAPS: Scores likely to change due to reporting system

By Jennifer Garcia

Results recently released showing Average Yearly Progress would suggest that the Los Alamos Public School District has a few things to work on, since only one school — Chamisa Elementary — met AYP this year.
However, the results of the LAPS Standard Based Assessment show something a little different and after a message sent by the Public Education Department Thursday night, school administrators aren’t exactly sure where the district stands.
At Thursday’s Los Alamos Board of Education work session, principals from Aspen, Barranca, Chamisa, Mountain and Piñon elementaries, as well as middle school principal Rex Kilburn and high school principal Sandy Warnock, met with LAPS administrators to discuss the assessment and share ideas on how to get each school to reach 100 percent proficiency in math and reading.
Toward the end of the discussion, LAPS Superintendent Gene Schmidt got a message on his cell phone from the PED, explaining that there were errors in some performance for reporting categories for SBA results. The PED recommended that the reports not be distributed to parents, but all the principals except for Kilburn, said the reports had already been circulated.
