BOE Contemplates State's New Flexibility Options

School System Logo Blue for web.JPGThe Bulloch County Board of Education (Board) will need to make a major decision by July 15, of next year. That’s when state law (OCGA §20-2-84.3) requires all school systems to notify the Georgia Department of Education (GaDOE) which of four new education models they will operate under.  The Board’s choice will determine the school system’s eligibility for freedoms from certain state education laws and regulations. Education leaders believe this flexibility will significantly increase community involvement, spur innovation and increase collaboration. In addition to the release below, see a presentation about Georgia's flexibility options by clicking here .

GA Releases CCRPI Scores; Majority of Local Scores Rise

School System Logo Blue for web.JPGGeorgia schools received their report cards Monday as the Georgia Department of Education (GaDOE) released district- and school-level scores for the state’s newest accountability tool. The majority of Bulloch County’s schools and the district posted gains even though the state changed many of the new system’s rules this year in order to increase the rigor.

In its second year, the College and Career Readiness Performance Index (CCRPI) data that was released is for the 2012-2013 school year.  Because the state raised the bar on several reporting areas, it also released revised scores for the 2011-2012 year based on the more stringent scale to allow for an apples-to-apples comparison. For parents, the CCRPI remains an easier to understand 100-point scale, that grades schools’ performance on factors such as attendance, standardized test scores, graduation rates, gaps in achievement and more.
