The Louisiana Department of Education (LDOE) has announced that five Lafayette Parish School System (LPSS) schools are being recognized as a 2022 Comeback Campus. Louisiana Comeback Campuses are schools that are performing at higher levels in reading and math than before the pandemic. These schools increased the percentage of students scoring Mastery and above and decreased the percentage of students scoring unsatisfactory in both math and ELA on 2022 statewide assessments when compared to 2019. High school Comeback Campuses also increased their ACT score.
LPSS schools receiving this recognition include: Broussard Middle School, Early College Academy, Edward J. Sam Accelerated School of Lafayette, Lafayette Middle School, and Myrtle Place Elementary School.
“Our leaders, educators, students, and families faced many challenges over the course of the last few years, and have overcome many obstacles to learning. This prestigious honor recognizes the positive impact educators have made with our students, despite many interruptions to normal teaching and learning opportunities. I am proud of each school community for receiving this prestigious honor.” states Superintendent Trosclair.
In addition to receiving this recognition, each school site will be visited by a member of the LDOE leadership team in January to honor, celebrate, and learn about the great work taking place inside our classrooms.
About LDOE’s Comeback Campus Campaign
Louisiana Comeback is a coordinated campaign to recover and accelerate learning lost due to challenges from the pandemic and hurricane-related school disruptions. In 2021, the LDOE asked school systems across the state to join the Louisiana Comeback by committing to invest a portion of their pandemic relief fund into three primary areas: attendance and wellbeing, recovery and acceleration, and professional learning.
