High school gets high marks

The Georgia Department of Education today released the second College and Career Ready Performance Index based on data from the 2012 and 2013 school years.
Screven County’s high school did well with the new scoring system. The elementary and middle schools were lower than the state averages for their respective grade levels.
Georgia’s elementary schools saw a one-year increase in scores from 74.9 to 78.5 (+3.6), middle schools saw a one-year increase in scores from 73.9 to 75.0 (+1.1) and high schools saw a one-year decrease in scores from 73.0 to 72.0 (-1.0).
Screven County Elementary had a 61.7; SCMS 70.6; and high school 82.5.
The high school score is 10.5 above the state average.
“While our scores do show room for improvement, we are very proud of the increase that was seen in the SCES and SCMS 2013 scores over the adjusted 2012 scores; this growth validates the hard work our students, teachers, and administrators have been doing,” said assistant superintendent Jim Thompson. “The fact that the SCHS score is 10 points above the state average is something in which the whole system can take pride.”
“Our staff works extremely hard,” said SCHS principal Brett Warren. “They  take ownership and a have great deal of pride in what they do.  I’m fortunate to work with them.”
The CCRPI is Georgia’s statewide accountability system, implemented in 2012 to replace the No Child Left Behind (NCLB) Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP) measurement, after the U.S. Department of Education granted Georgia’s waiver from NCLB on Feb. 9, 2012. It measures schools and school districts on an easy-to-understand 100-point scale, helping parents and the public better understand how schools are performing in a more comprehensive manner than the pass/fail system previously in place under AYP.
In addition to scores based on the 2013 school year, recalculated scores for the 2012 school year were also released today. Since the first “study year” of CCRPI implementation in 2012, the State has received valuable feedback from education partners and the public, and has revised and refined the CCRPI to make a more meaningful report.
