PARCC results list LAPS in top 4 in 2 categories

Los Alamos Public Schools ranked among the top four school districts in the state for both math and English language arts proficiency based on results released Thursday by the New Mexico Public Education Department.

The results were part of the state’s Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Career (PARCC) initiative.

Los Alamos was third overall in math proficiency with a 50.1 percent rating behind Roy Municipal Schools (63.3 percent) and Des Moines Municipal Schools (57.8).

Among the 89 school districts (not including state charters), these were the only three to have PARCC math proficiency rates of at least 50 percent.

The district finished fourth overall in English language arts proficiency with a 57.4 percent ranking behind Des Moines Municipal Schools (64.6); Cloudcroft Municipal Schools (62.0); and Melrose Public Schools (58.4).

“We are pleased that LAPS students are showing progress in math and reading and can see there is still room for improvement,” said Los Alamos Superintendent Dr. Kurt Steinhaus. “Our next step is to analyze the data, set student achievement goals for the year and develop plans for continuous improvement.”
