The Mississippi Department of Education released the school performance results and officials with The Lauderdale County School District (LCSD) are proud to remain a B school and even see an incline in data.
“We’re able to be a “B” again this year. We added 13 points this year over last year, we’re growing.” It’s just having good people and good teachers and really just having high expectations for all of our students and we’re happy,” said Dr. John Mark-Cain, LCSD superintendent.
Under Dr. John Mark-Cain’s administration there were 8 B schools, two A schools and two C Schools.
“We had a great first year as Superintendent of Lauderdale County. It’s great people, we got a very supportive community, we got a great school board, we got a great group of board of supervisors who support our school district,” said Dr. John Mark-Cain, LCSD superintendent.
Dr. John-Mark-Cain says the goal is to become an A rated school next year, but it will take a lot of effort.
“The model is a complicated model. We have to look at our data. We go in, we drive down to what our strengths are, what our weakness are, then we bring that back to the table with our teachers and say ok how can we strengthen our capacity,” said Dr. John Mark-Cain, LCSD superintendent.
