Georgia won’t rate schools and districts for 2nd year
Georgia will not grade schools and districts using state test results for the second year in a row, the state Department of Education announced, saying federal officials had waived the requirement for the state accountability system.
Georgia will not compute its College and Career Ready Performance Index, a numerical system that the governor’s office then uses to assign letter grades to schools and districts. The index is based mostly on test scores.
Last year, the state couldn’t produce the index because it didn’t administer its Milestones tests to students in grades 3-8 and high school. This year, the federal government is requiring Georgia to give the tests, but districts won’t be graded on how students do.
