The State of Georgia has released the 2003-2004 Office of School Accountability Report Card which will help local officials assess student achievement and performance while comparing McDuffie County schools to those across the state.
The purpose of the multi-faceted report is to provide a comprehensive view of the schools and to align Georgia's accountability system with provisions of the federal No Child Left Behind act, according to the Georgia Department of Education website.
The report provides information for those working to improve school performance and student achievement. Data is included from a range of categories: accountability, scores for Georgia tests, school performance indicators, student and school demographics, personnel and fiscal information, and national test results.
The Georgia Department of Education, which began publishing the Report Cards in 1995, records data for the entire state and offers two- and three-year comparisons of results for certain tests and other performance information. It is designed to help local officials assess the strengths and weaknesses in their schools and provides a basis for planning and implementing ideas for continued school improvement.
