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 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.

Despite the progress made by our students, Randolph County Elementary School has been designated as a Focus School under Georgia's ESEA Flexibility Waiver for the 2016-2017 school year. This designation is based on the school's 3-year average CCRPI Achievement Gap score, and we keep this designation until our school meets the exit criteria for Focus School status.

In 2014, Randolph County Elementary School received a CCRPI score of 53.4. In 2015, our score increased to 61.8. Additional information on our CCRPI score may be located at the Georgia Department of Education website, www.gadoe.org, under the heading Data and Reporting.

As a Focus School, we will work together with parents/guardians, our community, and the Randolph County School System to develop a school plan that delivers the necessary support to address the learning needs of our students and increase their academic success. One of the main interventions we are providing is a Flexible Learning Program (FLP). Students will be screened to determine if they qualify for the FLP. Once students are identified, parents will receive a FLP enrollment form to complete and return to the school.

An important part of Randolph County Elementary 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 Mrs. Robbin Temples, Principal, at 229-732-3794, or robbin.temples@sowegak12.org.

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


Mrs. Robbin Temples, Principal
