Zachary state's top performing district!
The Zachary Community School District earned the top District Performance Score in the state of Louisiana for the third straight year. School districts across the state received their District Performance Scores (DPS) this morning based on the school year ending in May/June 2007. It is a measurement of how districts compare to other local public school systems. The DPS is essentially a “roll up” of individual student scores on State examinations. Results from the LEAP, iLEAP and Graduation Exit Exams (GEE) are utilized along with student attendance and dropout rates. Sixty-one districts received scores for the 2006-2007 school year.
