Common Core Parent Night

On Wednesday March 19, 2014, Barnwell Elementary School and Barnwell PTA co-sponsored an evening event that allowed our parents to learn more about the curricular shifts embedded within Common Core Georgia Performance Standards across the curriculum. These include shifts with rigor, pace, assessment, and expectations with Common Core academic standards. Also discussed were ways that parents can support their students' academic performance within Common Core, beyond the classroom context. Below are web links and documents that were shared with parents as resources at our March 19 evening event:

Georgia Department of Education Releases First CCRPI Scores - May 2013

 

Greetings Barnwell Family!

The state of Georgia recently launched a new school accountability index, to provide schools, districts, and communities with valuable insight as to the particular areas that educational organizations excel, and are emerging. The index, called College and Career Ready Performance Index (CCRPI), combines multiple factors in determining schools’ and districts’ overall effectiveness in providing students with meaningful, comprehensive, and salient educational experiences to effectively prepare them for success in post-secondary education, the 21st century workforce, and mastering 21stcentury skills. School-level multiple-measures calculated in the index’ include: CRCT scores, CRCT score growth, attendance rates, writing assessment scores, reading lexile scores, achievement gap closure, graduation rates (middle and high schools), advanced placement and international baccalaureate exam scores, and the academic growth of English Language Learners, Students with Disabilities, and Economically Disadvantaged students. The index provides schools and districts with a “score” between 1 and 100, with certain measures counting as “Challenge Points,” awarding schools which have shown success in some historically challenging school metrics with 1-10 “extra credit” points.

This week, the Georgia Department of Education released the first publication of schools’ and districts’ CCRPI scores. I am proud to share with all of you that Barnwell Elementary School scored a 95.4 (out of 100) on our first CCRPI score! As a district, Fulton County Schools scored an 85.7 on its first CCRPI score.

As our staff reviews and analyzes the disaggregated data within the index scores, we will continue to examine ways to refine and enrich the highly effective educational experiences our dedicated staff already works tirelessly to provide. Way to go, Barnwell!!!
