Area School Report Cards
Tuesday, 07 May 2013

May 7--  Tuesday was report card day for schools in Georgia.

The state Department of Education released the first-ever College and Career Ready Performance Index (CCRPI) which grades schools on a 100 point scale, the same as students receive in their classes.

Generally speaking, many area schools fared below the state average and some did not receive a passing grade.

Among high schools, the state average is 72.6 points.  Vidalia High School came the closest to the state average with 71.4 points, followed by Treutlen High School with 69.5, Montgomery County High School with 67.9 and Toombs County High School with 65.2 points.

In the middle schools, the state average is 81.4 points.  J.R. Trippe Middle School in Vidalia made 80.1 points followed by Montgomery County Middle School with 78, Toombs County Middle School with 72.5 and Treutlen Middle School with 65.8.

The elementary school state average is 83.4 points.  Lyons Upper Elementary School scored 76.8 points closely followed by Toombs Central with 76.4.  Treutlen Elementary got 75.9 points, Montgomery County Elementary had 73.7 and Sally Meadows Elementary had 73.6.

The only two schools in the area who pulled down "A's" on their report cards are the primary schools in Lyons and Vidalia.  Lyons Primary got 95.6 points and J.D. Dickerson Primary made 91.4 points.

The new school grading system replaces the No Child Left Behind measurements.  

The scores released Tuesday are based on last school year.

Vidalia School Superintendent Dr. Garrett Wilcox said he wants some time to digest the data before making a comment, however, Toombs County School Superintendent Dr. Kim Corley issued a news release.

"I am very pleased to announce that the Toombs County School System did not have a single school in our district on the priority, focus, or alert school list.

"We were very pleased with that news. We certainly always want to continue to improve and will strive to make sure that the overall score for every school in our district improves each year.

"I can’t say enough about how hard our students, employees, and parents work to make sure that our students are academically successful. We will continue to make this our goal and look forward to great things happening in the Toombs County School System in the future," Dr. Corley said.
