AnnouncementsWeekly Update 1.21
Good Afternoon, League Academy! I hope everyone has had a great long weekend! We have a lot of good news to share with everyone! I would like to congratulate both of our basketball teams on a great season! Our last regular season games are tomorrow night beginning at 5:30 at Bryson Middle. Our boys team will begin playoffs on Thursday at 6:00 at Berea Middle. I would also like to congratulate our League Bands! This year we had 15 band students make all county band--the most in League history! That makes us number 2 in the amount of students going to all county band! Congratulations!!
In addition to the basketball games this week, we will have all spring sports conditioning from 4:00-5:00 on Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday. There is a band spirit night at Chick fil A Taylors on Thursday from 4:30-8:00--stop by on your way to the playoff game! We will also have an SIC meeting on Friday from 12:00 to 1:00.
One of the best things about League is our great ability to work together to minimize conflict and empower others to be leaders of kindness and positivity. The world is not perfect, and neither is League, but we sure can work to make it the best place it can be. Thank you all for remembering that positivity and kindness should prevail over adversity. Let us remember that this is what this day off is all about. In the words of Martin Luther King, Jr.: “Life’s most persistent and urgent question is, ‘What are you doing for others’”.
Let’s keep this thought at the forefront of what we do this week, and in the weeks to come.
Have a great week,
Mary Leslie Anderson
League Academy School Report Card
South Carolina School Report Cards
Below is the link to our School Report Card, released November 29, 2018 by the State Department of Education. Based on a number of factors, each school in the state has been rated as excellent, good, average, below average, or unsatisfactory.
These report cards are very different from past report cards in our state. The new report cards factor in multiple data points, test scores and surveys. The report attempts to measure a school’s academic achievement, student progress, college and career readiness and school climate. The reports will also include data on English Learners Progress, Student Safety, and Financial information. High School reports will factor in graduation rates, though the formula for determining the graduation rate has changed slightly from past years.
For the first time in South Carolina, NAEP (National Assessment of Educational Progress) scores will be used to help determine schools’ ratings. NAEP tests students in every state in fourth grade and eighth grade in math, reading, science, and writing. The percentage of schools ranked in each category (from unsatisfactory to excellent) will align to the State’s 2015 NAEP results, so about 15 percent of schools in South Carolina will be rated “excellent,” 20 percent will be rated “good,” 35 percent will be rated “average,” 20 percent will be “below average,” and 10 percent will be “unsatisfactory.”
Along with the new rating system, the report cards feature several new pieces of data, including Education Value-Added Assessment System (EVAAS). EVAAS measures student academic growth year-after-year. EVAAS measures student academic position in relation to his/her peers from one-year to another. Growth among lowest performing 20% of students counts double toward each school’s report card.
If you have any questions or concerns related to our school’s ratings, feel free to contact our principal via email or phone.
