Another Award for LWE!
Greetings Lake Windward ES Families,
Yesterday, I received a letter from the Governor's Office of Student Achievement congratulating our school for receiving Platinum Awards in both Student Achievement and Greatest Gains. This is an amazing accomplishment that very few schools in the state achieve. Out of over 2,000 schools in the state only 55schools got awards in both categories- even fewer getting "Platinum Awards" in both categories.
Lake Windward ES
Lake Windward earns top CCRPI score for elementary schools!
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!!
