Lincoln schools striving to meet new standards
At last week’s first ever State of the District meeting, Lincoln Parish Superintendent of Schools Danny Bell presented several goals the system would like to see accomplished in the coming years. Some of those goals include students entering fourth grade on time, being able to read by third grade, performing at or above level in both English and math by eighth grade and graduating on time.
School officials are working to ensure these goals are met, but they can’t do it alone. Parents and community members have to help ensure local students have all the resources they need to accomplish what is asked of them.
