Rising Seniors - Class of 2018

Ready for your senior year!? Below is important information for parents and students in regards to your senior year!





Georgia Parent Survey

The Georgia Parent Survey is an opportunity for our stakeholders to provide feedback on the educational programs at Tri-Cities High School. The results are included in our CCRPI score via the School Climate Surveys completed by parents, students, and staff.  This will take less than five minutes.  If possible, complete by February 1.

Dear Parents,
This week, the Georgia Department of Education released the 2016 College and Career Readiness Performance Index (CCRPI) for all schools in Georgia. The CCRPI is way the Georgia Department of Education measures schools and school districts and gives them a rating on a 100-point scale. Our 2016 score is 57.4, which is an increase from last year.

Although we are pleased to have seen an increase, we still view this as an opportunity to examine our test data to see where we excel and where we still need to make improvements. At the same time, we do not feel one measurement, such as the CCRPI score, is completely reflective of our school and the wonderful things that happen every day for our kids. 
The vast majority of the CCRPI score derives from student performance on the Georgia Milestones End of Course tests. Our test data indicates that we improved in almost every content area but still have much work to do.  We are working every day to improve our instructional program by offering professional development and coaching for our teachers.  In addition, we used our school improvement funds to partner with the Metropolitan Regional Educational Service Agency to support Algebra I, Geometry, US History, World History, Literature, Biology, and Physical Science teachers.   These subject areas, with the exception of World History, require an End of Course test at the completion of the course that counts towards 20% of the students’ final grade.   These trailblazing teachers will in turn share best practices with their colleagues and collaborate with teammates to design and implement high quality instructional experiences. 

At the end of the day, the CCRPI is an assessment of how we are doing in relation to the End of Course tests. We are thankful to have a snapshot of our performance, but we recognize that these CCRPI scores are based on one-day tests, whereas the school year is 180 days. There are many wonderful things happening for our students that are not captured by a single measurement, such as the CCRPI. 

When thinking about our school, I ask you to look at the experience you and your child are having at Tri-Cities and partner with us to make this the best year yet!  I invite you to attend our walk in parent conferences the fourth Tuesday of every month in the school cafeteria.  You have an opportunity to meet with your child’s teachers, administrators, counselors, and other support team members all in one location.  Please take advantage of this great opportunity.

As the principal of a wonderful school, who leads a supportive, caring staff, I am committed to the achievement and happiness of our scholars. That’s what drives our work every day. We are committed to teaching students in the best way possible. With your support we will continue to move forward and grow stronger.

Sincerely,
 
Termerion McCrary Lakes
Proud Principal​


​Move On When Ready Changes
 

Move On When Ready (MOWR), the state program for students who want to participate in college courses while also enrolled in high school, has recently undergone updates at the state level. Detailed MOWR information can be found at the following link – https://secure.gacollege411.org/Financial_Aid_Planning/Scholarships/Grants_and_Scholarships/MOWR.aspx

Students should be able to participate in MOWR per the state law in January 2016/spring semester, if they meet the following criteria:
1. The student must apply and be accepted into the post-secondary institution for the spring 2016 term.
2. The student must meet the post-secondary institution and state deadline for completing the MOWR Student Participation Agreement Form
3. The student must be able to remain on track for graduation if they are changing their schedule to participate in MOWR.

If you have questions regarding MOWR, please contact Kevin Scott and or your child’s counselor.
