Superintendent Scarlett Copeland is proud to report that Appling County School System is data driven for student achievement! The superintendent has visited all six of the system schools and indicated that all schools are doing an outstanding job on benchmarking or testing students each 8 ? weeks. All teachers and administrators then collaborate about the data and decide what methods need to be employed to assist students if they are having difficulty, as well as how to accelerate students who need to move on. Data rooms have been created in each school and are utilized to study each teacher’s classroom and also individual students within the classroom. This method assures that assistance is given to all students in the correct areas for improvement or acceleration.
Thus far, improvements have been made throughout the system from last year and the superintendent has indicated this trend of progress is continuing in our system. She stated, “It works for students and their achievement and we will see great things from it in Appling County. All of these efforts will assist us in moving forward to accomplish our Common Core Readiness Performance Index which is the national movement for student achievement to ensure students are College and Career Ready. All of our teachers and administrators should be commended for their commitment and dedication to this process which will benefit students.”
