The Louisiana Department of Education recently recognized 41 schools as Louisiana Comeback Campuses. These schools have made significant gains in both Math and English Language Arts since the pandemic.
Louisiana Comeback Campuses are schools that are performing at higher levels in reading and math than before the pandemic. These schools increased the percentage of students scoring Mastery and above and decreased the percentage of students scoring unsatisfactory in both math and ELA on 2022 statewide assessments when compared to 2019. High school Comeback Campuses also increased their ACT score. Statewide, 41 schools representing 29 school systems earned this prestigious honor. Comeback Campuses gain a variety of benefits such as recognition on Louisiana School Finder and an official banner presentation.
Two schools in Bienville Parish were recognized as Comeback Campuses, Gibsland-Coleman School and Saline High School. Dr. Brumley and his leadership team recently visited each of the schools to personally congratulate teachers and students and presented a banner to each principal recognizing the schools accomplishment. Dr. Brumley and his team conducted a learning walk around campus which allowed the LDOE leaders to see the specific efforts that led to student growth and better understand how they can be used to benefit students across Louisiana.
Louisiana Comeback is a coordinated campaign to recover and accelerate learning lost due to challenges from the pandemic and hurricane-related school disruptions. In 2021, the LDOE asked school systems across the state to join the Louisiana Comeback by committing to invest a portion of their pandemic relief fund into three primary areas: attendance and wellbeing, recovery and acceleration, and professional learning.
