Louisiana sets a target for comprehensive support schools to show real, sustained improvement.
Louisiana will exit comprehensive support schools after they achieve a C-rating for two consecutive years.
Louisiana proposes to exit targeted support schools if their subgroups exceed the “F” category for two consecutive years. Schools must also have an out-of-school suspension rate below a certain threshold for two years. While these provide specific targets, they imply that Louisiana accepts “D” ratings for individual subgroups, which is not very ambitious or aligned with its exit criteria for comprehensive support schools.
