State Makes Changes to School Accountability System | WABE 90.1 FM

Every public school in Georgia will soon receive a state-issued report card. This is the second year officials have used the reports. But there will be some changes this year.

The report card evaluates three criteria –achievement, progress, and how well the school has closed the achievement gap. The biggest change to the report card will be how each one of those things is weighted. Matt Cardoza is a spokesperson for the Georgia Department of Education:

“Achievement is now 60% instead of 70%, but the progress moved from 15% to 25% and the achievement gap remains at 15%,” he says.
