SCHOOL DISTRICT REPORT CARD
The intent of the Epping School District Report Card is to share successes and challenges in meeting the district student learning, professional learning, and accountability goals. Student demographic and educational data and financial data are routinely monitored to determine our successes and challenges. Please note that data may be from several years due to the availability of information from the NH Department of Education.
Student Demographic Information - Student demographics provide information on the growth of the Epping school community and the various needs of Epping students. Student diversity, socio-economic disadvantaged students, limited English proficiency students, Title 1 students, and special education students also make up the various subgroups subject to adequate yearly progress under No Child Left Behind.
Student Learning Information - Educational information provides information on the growth of students learning and the various needs of Epping students. The New England Common Assessment Program (NECAP) is used to measure overall school and district academic progress. Student post-secondary attendance and students serving in the armed forces provide a historical view of high school student success while annual student dropout information provides a historical view of high school student challenge.
Financial Information - The district continues to monitor cost in comparison to other school districts and state data when available. The Epping tax rate, local equalized tax rate, fund balance returned, cost per pupil, minimum teacher salary, average class sizes, school budget, and school revenue are reported on a yearly basis.
