Education

Langdon's students tend to outperform their District's Adequate Yearly Progress goals in both the proficiency and participation categories. Since 2005, in all areas where comparable statistics were available, Langdon outperformed state averages from 4.5% to 15.4%. In the 2006-2007 school year, reading participation was 100% and mathematics participation was 99.5%. Even though the 2007-2008 rates in these areas were very high (97.7% in both cases) such a score still represents a decline from previous years. Despite this high achievement, however, the District is not considered by the state to have achieved Annual Yearly progress in the 2007 2008 school year. This may be a statistical anomaly given the District's consistently high performance in previous years, but it will need to be reevaluated when the 2008-2009 data become available to determine whether it is part of a larger pattern or not. In some areas, 2007-2008 figures represent significant improvement over those from the 2006 2007 schoolyear, where Landgon underperformed state average in the key areas of reading (10.2%) and mathematics (7.4%) proficiency. This indicates a positive trend for the District, although one which will need-to be re-evaluated in 2008-2009. In addition to student academic performance, average daily attendance is slightly higher than the state average (97.2% versus 96.7%).
