Iles, Lincoln-Douglas rated as Targeted

The latest report on how Illinois schools are performing has been released, and it says that five of the schools in the Quincy Public Schools system are commendable.

The Illinois State Board of Education Thursday released the 2022 state report card for districts state-wide. It says that Quincy Senior High, Junior High, Rooney, Denman and Baldwin Elementary Schools are all commendable schools. That means that those schools have no under-performing student groups, a graduation rate higher than 67 per cent at Quncy High, and are not in the top 10 per cent of schools state-wide. Quincy High's graduation rate is at 83 per cent according to the report, which says the school has an 89 per cent retention rate. It also says that QHS has a 43 per cent rate of chronic absenteeism. The Junior High has a retention rate of 85 per cent, and a 39 per cent rate of chronic absenteeism. District-wide, QPS has a 36 per cent absenteeism rate, and a 21 per cent rate of students who are chronically truant.

The Report Card says that both Iles and Lincoln-Douglas Elementary schools are classified as Targeted. That means those schools have one or more student groups that are performing at or below the level of the “all students” group in the lowest performing 5 percent of schools.
