Baton Rouge Area Chamber says all school districts in our area improved
according to recent ranking in the form of report cards released Wednesday.
data shows that the St. Helena school district improved the most. St. Helena's
district is up over 13 points.
East Baton Rouge Public School System improved from a - D to a C grade.
"When you look at everything as a whole there really are a lot of
bright spots," said Meg Mahoney, the senior vice president of economic
competiveness for the Baton Rouge Area Chamber.
"We try to make sure folks understand those as well."
The report card for Forrest Heights Academy in the EBR district
was one of those bright spots.
The school is considered one of the poorer schools, and they got
an A grade.
"There are schools that are like that and have strong
leadership and they are able to find ways to really to bring resources to the
students there, said Mahoney.
While the BRAC report card shows some good, it reveals just as
much bad in some cases. The region has the same number of A and B school
districts and D and F school districts.
