How Did Alpharetta Fare on State's New School Report Card?

Ga. Dept. of Education releases new performance indicator.

Today the Georgia Department of Education released its first Georgia College and Career Ready Performance Index (CCRPI) that measures elementary, middle and high schools on a 100-point scale.

According to a press release, "the CCRPI is the new accountability system that replaces the No Child Left Behind (NCLB) Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP) measurement in Georgia."

The department stated that the average score for Georgia’s elementary schools is 83.4, middle schools is 81.4 and high schools is 72.6.

“I am very pleased that we now have a school improvement measure as in-depth as the College and Career Ready Performance Index,” said State School Superintendent Dr. John Barge in the release. “We are no longer bound by the narrow definitions of success found in the Adequate Yearly Progress measurement. Holding schools accountable and rewarding them for the work they do in all subjects and with all students is critical in preparing our students to be college and career ready.”

I am confused. Why are they announcing 2011-2012 results on May 2013? We are living in the technology era. How can we really help our children when adults share the results after a year. It would be much more meaningful, if we were able to access 2012-2013 results at this time. We should really have higher expectations from our department of education. I wonder if they have an explanation to this.
