    Prior to the 2010-2011 school year, schools received performance labels based on a star system (Performance Label — School Performance Score):
    • Academically Unacceptable — Below 60.0
    • Academic Watch — 60.0-74.9
    • One Star — 60.0-79.9
    • Two Stars — 80.0-99.9
    • Three Stars — 100.0-119.9
    • Four Stars — 120.0-139.9
    • Five Stars — 140.0 and above
    Beginning in the 2010-2011 school year, Louisiana began assigning districts and schools letter grades. Letter grades correspond to Baseline School Performance Scores, and are based on the following grading scale (Letter Grade — SPS Range — 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 (in 2011), 75.0-89.9 (in 2012) — 37-61%
    • F — 0-64.9 (in 2011), 0.0-74.9 (in 2012) — 62-100%
    Important Notes
    • A plus (+) will be added to the letter grade of schools that meet their growth target.
    • A minus (-) will be added to the letter grade of schools that have a declining SPS of .1 point or greater.
    • If a school does not receive a plus (+) or minus (-) sign, it signifies the school has either shown no growth or in some cases, improved its Baseline Score, but not enough to meet its 2011 Growth Performance Goal.
