School Climate and the CCRPI Update PDF Print E-mail

Date & Time: May 17, 2016 - 9:00am to 11:30am

Location: Liberty Board of Education ~ Hinesville

In response to the compelling body of research that underscores the importance of school climate, Georgia is the first state in the nation to include school climate as an early indicator in its academic accountability system, the College and Career Ready Performance Index (CCRPI).  The School Climate Star Rating is a diagnostic tool to determine if a school is on the right path to school improvement.  The FY15 School Climate Star Ratings will be calculated by the Georgia Department of Education soon.

A few changes have been made to the calculation process.  Marilyn Watson and Jeff Hodges from the Georgia Department of Education will be providing an overview to the calculation process and will be available to answer questions.  The meeting will provide participants with a better understanding of connecting School Climate and the CCRPI.  The target audience is School Administrators, PBIS District Coordinators, and Central Office Staff.
