Accountability Profile

Georgia's Single Statewide Accountability System (SSAS) includes an Accountability Profile for every public school and school system in the state. The Accountability Profile is composed of:
  1. An absolute performance determination based on Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP).
  2. A Performance Index based on annual growth in academic achievement as measured by statewide assessments.
  3. Performance Highlights which provide recognition for schools and school systems based on academic related indicators.
This school's performance on the three components is presented below.

1) Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP)
School met AYP
School met criteria in 5 out of 5 areas
Non-Title I School
Improvement Status: Distinguished

2) Performance Index

The Performance Index includes two components for each public school that detail the Percentage of Students Meeting and Exceeding Standards and the gain or loss of that percentage from the previous year.

The Governor's Office of Student Achievement (GOSA) awards those schools with the Highest Percentage of Students Meeting and Exceeding Standards and those with the Greatest Gain in Percentage of Students Meeting and Exceeding Standards.

Criteria were developed comparing the most recent two years of Criterion Referenced Competency Test (CRCT) (grades 1-8 in reading, English/language arts, math, social studies, and science) and/or the Georgia High School Graduation Test (grade 11 first time test takers - English/language arts, math, science, and social studies). Criteria were based on Full Academic Year (FAY) students.

  • The percentage of Students Meeting and Exceeding Standards in the current year is 92.69%.
  • This percentage reflects a Gain over the prior year of 0.79%.
  • This change was at or above 36.32% of the high schools in Georgia.
