Integrated Louisiana Educational Assessment Program (iLEAP)

In 2012-2013 Louisiana used the integrated Louisiana Educational Assessment Program (iLEAP) to assess students in grades 3, 5, 6, and 7 in math, English language arts, science, and social studies. The iLEAP is a standards-based test, which means it measures specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Louisiana. In preparation for new assessments in 2014-15, Louisiana is including more common core aligned content in LEAP and iLEAP tests in 2012-13 and in 2013-14. The percent of students earning a proficient score is expected to be lower as a result of this change.

    Tyrone Burton and Administrative Staff are the best. This is truly a neighborhood school with heart. The teachers love the students before school started they were there getting prepared for this year early and late on weekends also

    'My daughter has been attending Cherokee Park for three years. The principal and his staff are excellent with the children. He is there to greet each parent and student that arrive in the morning time. To me that let's me know that he do care that it is not just a job to him. The teachers work with their students on a level that will better the childs understanding. That is very encouraging to any child. Keep up the good work Cherokee Park Indians.'
