                                             TITLE I SCHOOL DESIGNATION PARENT NOTIFICATION

                                                                             08/25/2016

        Dear Parent(s)/Guardian(s)

        The Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) of 1965 requires that parents or guardians who have children attending a Title I school be notified of how well their school is preparing its students for college and/or a career, as well as the school’s designation status under Georgia’s ESEA Flexibility Waiver.

        Under the 2015 renewal of Georgia’s ESEA Flexibility Waiver, certain Title I schools continue to be designated as Reward, Priority, or Focus Schools.  The Waiver allows the use of the College and Career Ready Performance Index (CCRPI) as the comprehensive report card for all schools in Georgia, providing a score between 0-100 for each school—measuring how well the school is doing in preparing its students to be successful in college and/or a career.

        The school’s CCRPI score for the 2015 school year was a 64.6. Please look at the GADOE website to find more information about the details of the score or may make contact with the school.

        I am very proud to tell you that Conyers Middle School has not been given a school designation this year, which means we are a Title I school that is continuing to provide a quality education to all of our students. 

        We have made the greatest gains in closing our achievement gap and we have increased our scores in science and social studies.

        At Conyers Middle School, we take pride in the teaching we provide for our children. Our teachers and staff members work very hard to meet the needs of all students to ensure they achieve at their highest potential. 

         An important part of Conyers Middle School’s success is parent participation and support in developing activities to improve student achievement.  We hope that you will become involved in our school improvement work as we continue to monitor student achievement and set high expectations.  If you are interested in participating in the development of our school improvement plans, being a part of our family engagement team or have questions about how you can better help your child in school, please contact Principal Allison Barbour, at 770 483-3371 or abarbour@rockdale.k12.ga.us.

        Thank you for all that you do to support your child’s education.

        Sincerely,

        Allison Barbour

        Principal
