LaSalle II adds 65 pupils, reports progress
By Tom Tomek
For the 2010-11 school year, LaSalle II magnet school admitted 65 new students and will take on an additional staff/teacher position.
Student performance is projected to be above the state standard, according to the roadmap for improvement presented to the local school council Jan. 12.
In Northwest Evaluation Association reports for the school, 1148 N. Honore St., 69.8% of reading and 82.8% of math scores were above proficiency. The results were cited in LaSalle II's biennial School Improvement Plan for Advancing Academic Achievement report, which can be downloaded here.
Points of interest from the LaSalle II SIPAAA report:
The LaSalle II local school council website is being refined in conjunction with a new LaSalle II school website. Consistency of school name and identity is being considered. The LSC approved fundraising for a touch-screen computer to aid special-needs students.
The next meeting is at 6 p.m. Feb. 8.
