Educationedit

Langdon's high school underwent a name change because of surrounding schools closing The school was renamed "Langdon Area High School" instead of "Langdon High School" in the fall of 2001 The mascot of Langdon Area High School is the Cardinal

Students from Langdon Area Schools perform better than state averages in several areas Graduation rates, for example, typically exceed state averages by several points Since 2005, in all areas where comparable statistics were available, Langdon outperformed state averages from 45% to 154%12

Langdon's students also tend to outperform their District's Adequate Yearly Progress goals in both the proficiency and participation categories In some cases, these differences are quite significant For example, the District's 2007-2008 proficiency goal in mathematics was 655%, whereas the district's actual proficiency was measured at 977%, a difference of 322%12 A similarly large difference can be seen in reading proficiency scores 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 However, this may be a statistical anomaly given the District's consistently high performance in previous years For example, in the 2006-2007 school year, reading participation was 100% and mathematics participation was 995% Even though the 2007-2008 rates in these areas were very high 977% in both cases such a score still represents a decline from previous years Similar patterns of small declines from already high figures can be seen in the areas of graduation rates 04% decline, from 95% to 946% and attendance 01% decline, from 973% to 972% These small changes may keep the District from being listed as having made adequate yearly progress, despite their high overall proficiency Additionally, in some areas the 2007-2008 figures represent significant improvement over those from the 2006-2007 school year, where Landgon underperformed state averages in the key areas of reading -102% and mathematics -74% proficiency This indicates a positive trend for the District, although one which will need to reevaluated when the 2008-2009 data become available to determine whether it is part of a larger pattern or not

In addition to student academic performance, average daily attendance at Langdon Area Schools is slightly higher than the state average 972% versus 967%, a general pattern which has held true since at least 200512
