CCRPI Report is released


CAMS CCRPI score is 68.5.

GADOE MS CCRPI score is 71.2.

GSCS MS CCRPI score is 61.2.

Points of communication:

Our score dropped 1.5 due to change in standardized test from CRCT to GMAS.

CAMS 2015 CCRPI is 2nd of the 4 middle schools in the district.

2015 Georgia Milestones Assessment Student Growth Percentile in ELA, MA, SC, SS are above 50%.

CAMS led the district in growth in English/Language Arts.

CAMS is 2nd in growth in the district in MA and 3rd in the district in growth for social studies.

Georgia Milestones

The GADOE has decided that each district can apply for a waiver so that GAMAS will not be used to determine promotion/retention in grades 3,5,8.

This does not mean that the scores don't count.

We will await further directions from our district.

GAMAS Retesting 5/16-20, 2016

Grade Distribution

You will receive a nine weeks grade distribution form. Be prepared to discuss your parent contact log and plan for students who are in jeopardy of failing. This should not be documentation of who has failed, but rather, documentation of the interventions/reteach/remediation that you will provide.

Final Exam Schedule

It is imperative that you stick to the schedule as planned. Do not encourage students to stay at home during the last week of school. This counts against our attendance.
