Principal Update
A Message from Clifford Jones, Area Superintendent, Northeast Learning Community

Before the break, we gathered 249 responses to the principal fit survey. This information will be shared and utilized in the parent and teacher focus groups. We have pushed back the process to allow for more principal candidates that fit the findings of the survey to populate the principal pool. The principal pool will be expanding in early February.

Here is the updated timeline including the next steps:

Georgia Milestones Results

Georgia's Department of Education recently released state and school level results from the 2014-15 Georgia Milestones Assessment administered last Spring (click here for state level results). Test results place students into one of four categories based on their performance:

Level 1: Beginning Learners (do not yet demonstrate proficiency)

Level 2: Developing Learners (demonstrate partial proficiency)

Level 3: Proficient Learners (demonstrate proficiency)

Level 4: Distinguished Learners (demonstrate advanced proficiency)

It is expected that students score in levels 2, 3, or 4 to be considered on track for college and career readiness.

Overall, Shakerag students performed very well, as demonstrated in the following table (with Fulton County and Georgia percentages). The first number is the percentage of students scoring in Levels 2, 3 and 4 combined (partial to advanced proficiency) while the second number is the percentage of students scoring in Levels 3 and 4 (proficient or advanced proficiency). For example, in 3rd grade ELA at Shakerag 92% of our students scored in Levels 2, 3 and 4, while 73% scored in Levels 3 and 4.

2015-2016 School Year

School hours are 7:40 - 2:20 PM. Students may be dropped off beginning at 7:10 each morning - parents wanting to walk their children in need to park in our side parking lot. Students in car pool should be ready to exit the car on the right side - we are happy to open doors but students do not need to wait for us! The best time to drop off in car pool is before 7:30 - between 7:30 and 7:40 it is extremely busy!

Dismissal begins at 2:20 each afternoon. If you are picking your child up in car pool please be in the lane by 2:25 each afternoon. All our buses will depart at about 2:30 each afternoon - please be at your child's bus stop a few minutes prior to their arrival.

We have 4 Professional Learning Days for Shakerag for the 2015-16 school year. On these days Shakerag students will not have school and Shakerag teachers will work towards improving their instructional effectiveness as we finish our TAG Certification coursework.

Personalized Learning

Shakerag is part of Fulton County's first group of schools working towards the goal of Personalized Learning for our students. We are excited to begin the work of transforming education to help challenge and engage students for the 21st century.

Our SGC recently approved our request to receive Surface Pro Tablets as our Personalized Learning device. We expect to have class sets of these by January, 2016. Per Fulton County guidelines, Shakerag will receive one set of 10 devices for every 30 students enrolled and one device for every teacher - about 260 student devices and 45 teacher devices!

Below is a quick look at our past, present and future learning.
