Student Growth Percentiles Coming Soon!

Since 2012, we have been educating our parents on Student Growth Percentiles.  It is expected in February, that parents (4th and 5th graders) will receive a report of the academic growth of your child based on CRCT scores.  This report will show a measure of growth as compared to that of your child’s academic peers (statewide).  I am pleased to announce that May Howard Elementary School has shown tremendous growth in many subject areas.  The report also shows us where we need to grow and I have the vision for how to obtain that growth.  We have amazing teachers and amazing students.  We will continue to grow as we teach and learn at high levels!

For additional answers to questions about Student Growth Percentiles, please visit the SCCPSS website at http://internet.savannah.chatham.k12.ga.us/Lists/Frequently%20Asked%20Questions/DispForm.aspx?ID=7&Source=http%3A%2F%2Finternet%2Esavannah%2Echatham%2Ek12%2Ega%2Eus%2FLists%2FFrequently%2520Asked%2520Questions%2FAllItems%2Easpx
