Sounds like Georgia's elementary schools took a hit last year.

Quote:
A significant year-to-year decrease was seen in the elementary school score, mostly due to bonus point opportunities not being met for Economically Disadvantaged students, English Learners, and Students with Disabilities. Each year, schools can earn extra points if those student groups are meeting performance targets. From the 2015 to 2016 school year, annually increasing targets were not met for these elementary student groups, even though subgroup performance increased in math, science, and social studies.

“These results point to the need for continued intensive focus on the foundations in early grades,” State School Superintendent Richard Woods said. “However, I don’t believe the CCRPI captures all the great work happening in our schools. We have seen improvements and, in some cases, record results on the ACT, SAT, and in graduation rates.

Sounds like they changed how CCRPI is calculated.

It's suppose to be part of the plan. Rather then use text books children are suppose to be receiving a hands on experience. It's the same here nyc. Only my high school daughter gets the occasionally text book.

I would second the recommendation of moving (maybe toward Fayetteville or Peachtree City if you need to stay south of the city) and definitely apply to Chattahoochee Hills Charter School.
