    Federal accountability

    Fontenelle Elementary has been identified as needing improvement under the federal No Child Left Behind law. That means the school missed state goals for Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP) for two or more consecutive years.

    Fontenelle is among Nebraska's "Persistently Lowest-Achieving Schools," a designation that makes the school eligible for federal assistance. The school is in the 3rd of three tiers for funding priority. Schools in the 1st tier are most likely to receive grants.

    Glossary

    Overall score

    We combined a number of performance indicators for each school to create an overall score. The score is expressed as an index, with a maximum score of 100. The performance indicators are:

  • Proficiency rates on state and local assessments for reading, math, science and writing.
  • Average scores on the ACT college entrance exam (high schools only).
  • Graduation rate, if applicable.
  • A few schools, as noted on their pages, do not have all of the performance indicators. Their overall scores were computed using the available test results, with adjustments to keep them on the same index scale as other schools.

    Demographic index

    Socioeconomic factors can pose challenges for schools and influence test scores. To make it easier to compare such challenges among schools, we've created an index that combines three factors:

  • Poverty (the percentage of students in the subsidized lunch program)
  • Language (the percentage of students who are English language learners)
  • Mobility (the percentage of students who change schools midyear)
  • Schools that face the biggest challenges have a demographic index of 100. Schools with an index of zero have no reported socioeconomic issues.
