The Louisiana Department of Education on Tuesday released school report cards summarizing and evaluating academic achievement for the 2013-14 school year, part of the state’s long-term transition to higher expectations. Each school report card includes information used to calculate school letter grades and provides parents and educators information on the performance of schools statewide. The release comes on the heels of a two-week period in which department staff and school district leadership reviewed school results and analyzed the information contained in the reports through in-depth discussions specific to each district, a news release from the Louisiana Department of Education.

Livingston Parish schools ranked ninth overall while Tangipahoa Parish schools ranked 50, according to the results.
