Career Ready Performance Index (CCRPI) Score
The Georgia Department of Education recently released results of the
second year of its College and Career Ready Performance Index (CCRPI). CCRPI is
Georgia’s statewide accountability system, implemented last year 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 in 2012. It
measures schools and school districts on an easy-to-understand 100-point scale,
helping parents and the public to better understand how schools are performing
in a more comprehensive manner than the pass/fail system previously in place
A school and
district’s overall score is made up of three major areas: Achievement (60 points
possible), Progress (25 points possible) and Achievement Gap (15 points
possible). In addition to the three major areas, some schools receive “Challenge
Points” to add to their score. They receive these points if they have a
significant number of Economically Disadvantaged students, English Language
Learner students and Students with Disabilities meeting expectations. They also
receive “Exceeding the Bar” points for going beyond the targets of the CCRPI by
challenging students to exceed expectations and participate in college and
career readiness programs.
Parklane Elementary School’s score for 2013 was a 58.8. We are
currently reviewing all of the data which influences the overall score. The
Title I Committee will use this necessary data to help guide our School
Improvement Plan (SIP) for the 2014-2015 school year. Information
regarding our next steps will be provided to all parents at the beginning of
next school year.

Performance Index (CCRPI) please visit the website http://www.gadoe.org/CCRPI/Pages/default.aspx
Student Code of Conduct and Discipline
Know the Expectations for A Successful Academic School Year
|Parents, please take a moment to review and discuss the Student Code of Conduct and Discipline Handbook with your child(ren): English Spanish.|
When teachers spend less time managing behavioral issues, they have more
time to provide meaningful learning experiences for your child. Thank you for
taking the time to become familiar with this information, as it is our goal to
provide a safe learning environment for all students.
Georgia Milestones Assessment System (GMAS)
Georgia Milestones Assessment System (GMAS) replaces the CRCT, and Writing Assessments in grades 3 and 5. GMAS results may be used in promotion and retention decisions at grades 3 (reading), 5 (reading and mathematics). The test will consist of the following types of answer options:
- Selected-Response all content areas[aka, multiple-choice],evidence based selected response in ELA
- Constructed-Response ELA and mathematics Constructed response is a general term for assessment items that require the student to generate a response as opposed to selecting a response.
- Extended-Response ELA and mathematics Extended-response items require more elaborate answers and explanations of reasoning. They allow for multiple correct answers and/or varying methods of arriving at the correct answer. Writing prompts and performance tasks are examples of extended-response items.
