In promoting academic achievement throughout the public schools or Lincoln parish, Lincoln 21 ACHIEVE is committed to rewarding success and growth at all levels. As a part of this effort, the following school incentive program will be initiated during the 2007-08 academic year.
Based on scores from the previous year, any public school that records Exemplary Academic Growth through improving its School Performance Score and/or achieves an SPS Score of 105 or better, will be honored with a gala event and recognition within our community; administration, faculty, and key school stakeholders will be involved.
Public schools honored during the community gala event will then be awarded an additional day off at the beginning of the Christmas holidays; administration, faculty, staff, and students will enjoy the extended holiday as the school is closed in honor of its academic achievement.
Any public school that improves its School Performance Score by 10 points or more will be awarded an additional holiday following the spring testing period (scheduled to be the Friday at the end of the Make-up Testing week); administration, faculty, staff, and students will enjoy the extended weekend as the school is closed in honor of its academic achievement.
Any public school that achieves Exemplary Academic Growth and/or a School Performance Score of 105 or better for two years in a row will receive an additional gift reward from the community; administration and faculty will be included in this component; the additional performance score will be adjusted to align with the program’s yearly targets.
This is based on the school’s ability to maintain the required number of instructional minutes; should a natural disaster or some other unforeseen event occur that requires school to be closed for an extended amount of time, the holiday day may have to be adjusted or other arrangements made.
In an effort to work toward the 2014 target SPS of 120, the process will be repeated during the following academic years with the noted point increments added.
