Scheduling Clarification for 2016 - 2017
We are pleased to introduce a 1st period literacy block for all ECMS students this school year. During this 35 minute segment of time, our students will be engaged in reading high-interest, content-related texts. We will now have a 7 period day, with "Library/Research Skills" representing our literacy block. We are excited about the positive impact that this literacy focus will have on our Panthers!
More about “Student Growth”…
“Georgia is implementing the student growth percentile (SGP) methodology. SGPs describe the amount of growth a student has demonstrated relative to academically-similar students from across the state. Growth percentiles range from 1 to 99, with lower percentiles indicating lower academic growth and higher percentiles indicating higher academic growth. With SGPs, all students – regardless of their achievement level – have the opportunity to demonstrate all levels of growth.”
