Find out if your Georgia school made the grade in 2017


Do you wonder how your kid’s school is doing, but feel overwhelmed by all the data?

Last month, the Georgia Department of Education released a school report card that many find baffling in its complexity.

So another state agency, the Governor’s Office of Student Achievement, has been interpreting the 2017 data, which is mostly based on standardized state test results, and producing its own, arguably more intuitive report card.

The basic numbers, accompanied by colorful charts and graphs and a simple A-F grading system, have been out for several weeks, but GOSA has been gradually adding data to its reports. New numbers were released this week and an agency official said more are expected to be added in coming weeks. Look up your school on GOSA’s report card here.
