District Performance Scores

District Performance Scores (DPS) are a “roll up” of a school district’s individual student scores on the LEAP, iLEAP and Graduation Exit Exam as well as attendance and dropout rates, and graduation outcomes. District Performance Scores are calculated with the same formula as School Performance Scores, but use one year of data, as if the district is one large school.

Beginning in the 2010-2011 school year, Louisiana began assigning districts and schools letter grades. Letter grades correspond to District and School Performance Scores, and are based on the following grading scale: 

Letter Grade
SPS Range (2010-2011)
Approx. % of Students Below Basic
A
120.0-200.0
0-12%
B
105.0-119.9
13-24%
C
90.0-104.9
25-36%
D
65.0-89.9*
37-61%
F
0-64.9*
62-100%
