PASS Test Scores for 2012
For the first time under Federal Accountability Law, South Carolina schools and districts received letter grades based upon student achievement. “The new federal report card tells students, parents, schools, and the public how schools are performing in a clear and easily understood system of letter grades.” The letter grade system replaces Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP), which required a school to meet every performance objective. Schools were designated either “Met” AYP or “Not Met” AYP. Chandler Creek's Accountability grade is 90.5 = A. We are very excited about these results! more >>>
