Oak Hill recognized for progress

(Continued)

MILLEDGEVILLE —

Georgia is using the CCRPI to hold each public school, school district and the state accountable, implementing CCRPI as Georgia’s state accountability system during the 2012-2013 school year. The CCRPI replaces the No Child Left Behind (NCLB) Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP) measurement in Georgia. The U.S. Department of Education granted Georgia’s waiver release from NCLB in February 2012.

Beginning in the 2013-2014 academic year, schools will receive ratings based on their financial efficiency and school climate, but these ratings will be for the public’s information only and will not factor into the school’s overall CCRPI score.

The GaDOE will recognize Reward Schools at the annual Title I conference, and Reward Schools may receive financial awards in the future.

“I give kudos to our teachers, who are the world’s greatest teachers. We started with the Common Core curriculum, which is very rigorous in math and writing, where children are required to do more problem-solving skills, so teachers have to engage children in the classroom,” Ramsey said. “It’s going to take all of us working together to make sure all children are successful. We want children to go to high school prepared so they can go on to accomplish great things.”
