Dear Durham Parents,
We hope you will please take a few minutes to complete the
Georgia Parent Survey.
It contains 24 questions and parents may complete the survey
using personal computers, smartphones or iPads. All
parents are encouraged to participate in the Georgia Parent
Survey. The data will be used to calculate the
School Climate Star Rating on the CCRPI.
Survey responses are anonymous and will be submitted
directly to the Georgia Department of Education for
analysis. In order for your responses to be considered,
please complete your
survey by February 27th.

College and Career Readiness
Performance Index (CCRPI) Scores for all schools in Georgia
were released on Tuesday, 12/16/14.
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.
Winter has arrived. All students should consider
dressing warmly with gloves,
head-covering, and multi-layered clothing to
protect against the cold.
school day starts at 8:50 each day, and we open the building to students at 7:50 AM each
morning. Students who arrive too early wait outside
because there is no supervision available in the mornings
before 7:50 AM. We don't want our students waiting
outside in the cold temperatures.
Please help us by dropping your students off AFTER 7:50 AM
