Our students come from a mix of socioeconomic and cultural backgrounds. Special Education services are delivered to about 20% of our students, using a combination of support styles. 

Our Student Support Team and Multi-Disciplinary Teams work with staff to provide ongoing resources for our students’ academic or social/emotional needs. LP Brown is a PBIS school, and has solid structures in place to recognize positive student behavior and to intervene with appropriate strategies to support growing students.

The LP Brown community is highly involved in the education of every child. Enrichment activities regularly funded through the PTO (Parent Teacher Organization) help staff extend the curriculum for all students.

Measures of Academic Progress (MAP)

MAP is a district assessment that measures a student's developing skills through a series of questions that adapt to the child’s level of learning. Research on MAP indicates the results are highly accurate. The results help teachers measure growth and determine whether a student may need more support or more challenge.


What is the Rasch UnIT (RIT) scale?

When students finish their MAP Growth test, they receive a number called an RIT score for each area they are tested in (reading, language usage, math, or science). This score represents a student’s achievement level at any given moment and helps measure their academic growth over time. The RIT scale is a stable scale, like feet and inches, that accurately measures student performance, regardless of age, grades, or grade level. Like marking height on a growth chart, and being able to see how tall your child is at various points in time, you can also see how much they have grown between tests.

The higher the RIT score, the more achievement the student has in the subject. The student's percentile ranking and conditional growth percentile can show how much the student has achieved in comparison with their peers. You can also refer to the Comparative Data to Inform Instructional Decisions to understand how students are performing relative to other students in the same grade level according to our national norms.
