LILA Lower School was recognized by the Minnesota Department of Education among the 526 top performing public schools across the state. Schools were identified as top performers in multiple areas of progress in school performance. LILA was recognized for overall math progress, reading progress for fifth grade and consistent attendance for fifth grade. We are proud of our students and staff. LILA’s star is shining brightly!
The recognition is a key part of the state’s new North Star accountability system that aims to create more equitable and well-rounded learning opportunities for all students across the state. Using data from the five key indicators that make up North Star — achievement and progress on state reading and math tests over time, progress toward English language proficiency, graduation rates and consistent attendance — the state is better able to identify and learn from schools that consistently perform at high levels across multiple domains.
