2017-18 Comprehensive Performance Framework Proposed Updates

Georgia is required to comply with federal education requirements as outlined by the U.S. Dept. of Education (USED). This compliance is determined in large part by the state’s adherence to an overall “education plan” which is drafted at the state level and submitted to/approved by USED. This plan is commonly referred to as the state’s “ESSA Plan” (ESSA = Every Student Succeeds Act).  Georgia’s updated ESSA plan was approved by USED earlier this year, and it required some adjustments to a few College and Career Readiness Performance Index (CCRPI) indicators and calculations. These adjustments are reflected in the 2018 CCRPI that was released by the Georgia Dept. of Education (GaDOE) in late October. While state charter school leaders are already aware of how the new calculations will impact their schools, it’s time for the SCSC to update the Comprehensive Performance Framework (CPF) to ensure alignment between the SCSC’s accountability measures and those encompassed within the state-approved accountability tool.   

Though these changes are not drastic or numerous, the SCSC seeks to inform the public of the proposed updates and provide an opportunity for feedback. The proposed changes are outlined in the documents below. 

The SCSC plans to adopt these changes at its November SCSC meeting. The SCSC will accept written feedback on the content of the proposed changes through November 12, 2018. ​Please submit feedback or questions to Katie Manthey, SCSC Academic Accountability Manager, at katie.manthey@scsc.georgia.gov or (404) 656-2837.
