A Message From the Principal

Dear Barber Middle School Parents,

Yesterday (as indicated by local news), an adult male was reported to have exposed himself to a student at a bus stop. This incident was reported to the administration at Barber MS and the Acworth Police Department was immediately contacted. They are currently actively investigating the incident. They have assured me that every precaution is being taken to make sure that our students are safe - on their way to and from school.

As always, the safety and security of our students is our number one priority. We, too, are supporting this investigation in every way possible. If you have additional information that would help us in this investigation, or if you have questions regarding this letter, please do not hesitate to contact me at the school. I can be reached at 770-975-6764. I will be happy to speak with you.

Georganne Young
Supply Principal

When the Georgia Department of Education (GaDOE) announced the College & Career Ready Performance Index (CCRPI) scores on December 8, district administrators noticed that specific information for calculating a portion of the score was not included in the released score for each middle school.  Therefore, the middle school CCRPI scores showed an inaccurate drop across the district.  The issue was immediately addressed on December 9 by the district with the GaDOE Accountability and Assessment Department and is currently being resolved. 


Once the new data is incorporated into the recalculation, correct scores for CCSD middle schools will be released and published by the GaDOE at the end of January.  Based on internal preliminary calculations by district administrators, the results show that the CCRPI score at every middle school, as well as the overall district score, will increase.  The corrected scores will be issued by the State within the next 45 days.


Georgia Parent Survey


It is that time of year again for the Georgia Parent School Climate Survey for the 2014-2015 school year.

The survey is officially opened and will remain open through Friday, February 27, 2015.  The Georgia Parent Survey contains 24 questions.  Parents will be able to complete the survey using their personal computers, smartphones or iPads.  We encourage all parents to participate in the Georgia Parent Survey because the data will be used to calculate the School Climate Star Rating.  Survey responses are anonymous and will be submitted directly to the Georgia Department of Education for analysis.  Data results from the Georgia Parent Survey will not be available to the public and will not be posted online.  The URL address for the Georgia Parent Survey is posted below:
