DeSoto Leads State in ACT Growth

The Louisiana Department of Education’s latest data release shows the DeSoto Parish School System leading the State in ACT growth.  This is more good news for a system whose performance is on the rise in nearly every academic indicator. From 2015 to 2016, the average ACT composite score for tested students in DeSoto Parish grew 1.1 points from 18.2 to 19.3. Under Louisiana’s current accountability model, every senior must take the ACT in advance of graduation.

 

“This is great news, but I’m not surprised,” said Dr. Cade Brumley, DeSoto Parish Superintendent. “As a system, we’ve been strategic in our effort to increase these scores. I’m thankful to the educators and students who own this growth – we’re only celebrating because of them.”

 

Over the last four years, ACT scores in DeSoto have risen annually, up a total of 1.9 points. In 2013, the average DeSoto score was 17.4.  The 2016 average of 19.3 represents marked improvement. Over this course of time, the system developed yearly score targets and specific plans for action to achieve the objectives. On each school campus, educators have worked together to build a culture of ACT success and the district consistently reinforces positive gains and effort.

 

“This is great news for everyone in our communities,” said Dr. Neil Henderson, Board President. “I’m really proud of our staff and students for their efforts to improve and show greater college and career readiness.”

 

Additionally, the Louisiana Department of Education’s results highlighted DeSoto’s work in improving ACT results for minority students. DeSoto tied for first in the State of Louisiana for ACT growth with minority students, up to an average score of 17.6 from 16.5.  Further, DeSoto tied for ninth in the State of Louisiana for ACT growth with economically disadvantaged students, up to an average score of 18.0 from 17.3. 

 

“Our targeted work shows we’re not just improving outcomes for the general population, but our various subgroups as well,” said Kathy Noel, Director of Student Learning. “It’s great to see such motivation and determination for ACT achievement in our schools.”

 

DeSoto remains just under the Louisiana ACT average of 19.5, but is outpacing the State in rate of improvement. The average ACT score in Louisiana grew 0.2 while the average DeSoto score grew 1.1 points.

 

“This improvement means increased college admission for students, more scholarships, and less remedial work at the college campus – all of this saves money for our families,” said Dr. Brumley.  “We owe it to our students, parents, and community to keep getting better – and that’s exactly what we intend to do.”
