Great Kindness Challenge
Students and staff at Tapp Middle School participated in a
one week challenge called the Great Kindness Challenge. They
were encouraged to perform at least 50 kind acts for others
including their peers, teachers, staff and family. Everyone
enjoyed making nice cards for each other, holding doors open
for one another, and expressing kind thoughts and sentiments
to one another. The kindness was truly contagious, and
students and staff reported an overall improvement in school
environment as they were working to complete the challenge.
Tapp students were interviewed by 11 Alive news about the
kindness challenge, and the school was given a proclamation
by the mayor of Powder Springs for our efforts.

2014 CCRPI Scores released by
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.
