NEWCOMB ACHIEVEMENT DATA PROGRESS

On the state SBAC testing last spring, students in grades 3-8 at Newcomb showed steady improvement.  With a 3% increase in our English/Language Arts scores, and a 4% increase in Math, Newcomb's overall proficiency exceeded other K-8 schools in our district.  In grades K-5, our Newcomb students earned the highest overall proficiency rate in the district on the Benchmark Book Assessment of Reading.  Keep up the great work, Spartans!

School Accountability Report Card (SARC)

Dear Parents:
 
State law requires all public schools to create a School Accountability Report Card (SARC). The purpose of the
report card is to provide parents and the community with important information about your child’s school.
 
We invite you to view the SARC by visiting the Long Beach Unified School District website at
www.lbschools.net and following the below instructions.
 
1. Hover over Schools
2. Click Accountability Reports
3. Select a school from the appropriate drop down menu and click GO!
 
 
 
If you do not wish to use a computer, feel free to visit the office of any school and ask for a copy.
 
Sincerely,
 
Christopher Borunda
