Mrs. Morris and students celebrate our awesome CCRPI score!
This morning, the Georgia Department of Education released the 2017 College and Career Readiness Performance Index (CCRPI) for all schools in Georgia. The CCRPI is the way the Georgia Department of Education measures schools and school districts and gives them a rating on a 100-point scale. Our school's 2017 score is 104.5 which is a 4.1 increase from last year! We are one of two schools in the Fulton County School System that scored over 100 points due to being awarded exceeding the bar points. In fact, I am so excited to share that Lake Windward Elementary has the highest score of ALL schools in the entire district!!
The Georgia Department of Education also released its annual School Climate Star ratings for all schools in Georgia. Our 2017 score is 5 stars which is an increase from last year. School climate refers to the quality and character of school life – the "culture" of a school. School climate ratings are based on survey results as well as discipline and attendance data from the 2016-2017 school year. Each school is rated on a 1-5 scale, with five stars representing an excellent school climate, and one star representing a school climate in need of improvement. We are so proud to have gone from previously receiving 3 stars to now receiving 5 stars!
Lake Windward ES is an amazing school where students learn and grow in a supportive and safe environment. In order to achieve outstanding results such as this, it is a collective community effort. I would like to thank all of our teachers, students and parents for supporting and embracing the work that we do. I am certainly one proud principal!! J
Mrs. Susan Ahmad is honored as one of the AJC's Top 10 Teachers. Congratulations, Mrs. Ahmad!

Student Achievement Awards
Gold Award for Highest Performing
Platinum Award for Greatest Gains
More awards for Lake Windward!
This week I received a letter from the Governor's Office of Student Achievement. The letter states that Lake Windward ES has earned the Platinum Award in the Greatest Gains category for exhibiting high growth in student achievement, meaning our academic growth over the last three years has been in the top 1% of schools in the state. In addition, we also earned a Gold Award in the Highest Performing category for exhibiting high academic performance, meaning that our overall achievement over the last three years has been in the top 3% of schools in the state.
The letter goes on to say that we are one of only 29 schools in the state to receive the 2016 Platinum award for Greatest Gains and one of 26 schools in the state to receive the 2016 Gold award for Highest Performing.
I am incredibly proud of our school community and your dedication to our students. This kind of success doesn't happen unless students, staff and parents, are onboard and committed to high levels of learning for all students.

Lake Windward earns top CCRPI score for elementary schools!
The Georgia Department of Education (GaDOE) released the results for the 2016 College and Career Ready Performance Index (CCRPI), including the scores for Fulton County Schools. Two schools in the county were mentioned specifically for "exceeding the bar" – Lake Windward Elementary and North View High School – with scores of 100.4 and 101.2 respectively. Superintendent Jeff Rose said, "I'm encouraged that so many of our schools continue to excel, in particular the two schools that earned perfect scores."
Mrs. Julie Morris congratulates the students and staff for having the top CCRPI score for elementary schools in the district, and the second highest score in the district for all schools. Way to go, Lake Windward!
