2015-16 School Choice

The Cobb County School District is again offering School Choice (HB 251 and SB10) transfers for the 2015-2016 school year.  Individual school capacity information and applications will be available beginning February 1, 2015 on the District website.  For more information, please see our 2015-16 School Choice webpage.

CCRPI: 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.

GA Milestones: The Department of Education has released the Assessment Guides for grades 6, 7, and 8 for the GA Milestones End of Grade tests. Click here to view the guides and parent information.

Georgia Parent Survey
It is that time of year again for the Georgia Parent School Climate Survey for the 2014-15 school year.
The faculty and staff would greatly appreciate our parents taking a few minutes to complete the Georgia Parent School Climate Survey. 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. To take the survey, please click here.
