It is with great pride to announce that Dozier Elementary achieved a rating as an "A" school again this year. We ranked first in the district in the elementary school category.
Dozier Elementary School Performance Score for this year with the “new” formula is 91.9, which is an “A” school. The state is using a new calculator with the new accountability formula. The expectations to become an “A” school is higher than before.
At first glance, it appears that we went down from our 111 score from last year. However, we didn't. If we put our new data using the old accountability formula our score would be 115.3. If we compare that to last year's score of 111, we have a growth of 4.3!
I am extremely proud of our students who not only made Dozier Elementary an "A" school for the fourth year in a row, but who work hard daily!
I also want to thank our faculty and staff who strive each and every day to provide a wonderful and engaging learning environment which keeps our students working hard. Our teachers have high expectations for all our students.
Our faculty and staff want to offer a sincere thank you to our amazing parents who play a vital role in the success of our school every single day. We truly are fortunate to have a community whose priority lies with our children. Finally, I'd like to express my gratitude to the Central Office leaders (at the Vermilion Parish School Board office) who helped guide us through our journey, not only this year but in past years as well.
As the saying goes, "It takes a village...." It truly does! We all worked together to achieve this goal. Today, I want to offer a sincere heartfelt "thank you" to all in our "village" who offered support, guidance and hard work to achieve our school wide goal this year!
