Agenda Item Title
Recommend Approval of Request for Metro School, Lincoln Heights Academy and Turning Point Academy to Use the State's Alternative Accountability Model
Frank Barnes, Chief Accountability Officer
This year, the North Carolina Department of Public Instruction (DPI), by directive of the NC State Legislature, will be issuing School Performance Grades for schools. This grading system is a type of school accountability system by which schools are held accountable for student academic growth and students' attainment of a proficiency rating on End-of-Grade (EOG) or End-of-Course (EOC) exams. However, DPI is allowed to offer alternative schools throughout the state an alternative accountability model by which to account for their performance. Schools and school districts are given four (4) options to choose from. We have three alternative schools in CMS that have been extended this option: Turning Point Academy, Metro School, and Lincoln Heights Academy. Before each school's selection can be advanced to the State Board of Education, the CMS Board must approve each school's selection.
