Parent Notification of the FY 16 Terrell County Schools ESEA Flexibility Waiver. As of March 30, 2012, the U.S. Department of Education granted Georgia a waiver from some accountability requirements of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA), more commonly referred to as No Child Left Behind (NCLB). The waiver will allow Georgia Department of Education (GaDOE) more flexibility for how schools are evaluated and supported. Prior to the ESEA waiver, Georgia used Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP) as the state's accountability measure. The new statewide accountability system, the College and Career Readiness Performance Index (CCRPI), will serve as the future of accountability for all public schools and districts in Georgia. Attached is the FY 16 Terrell County Schools ESEA Flexibility Waiver Parent Notification in English and Spanish.

Terrell County's graduation rate for 2014 is 85.1% above the state average of 72.6%
The Georgia Department of Education announced on Thursday, December 18, 2014 that Terrell County High
School was 1 of 38 Schools removed from the Priority and Focus School lists.
Terrell County’s School Superintendent and Terrell High School’s Principal were
exceptionally pleased about the graduation rate for Terrell High School for 2015 that was
released last week by the Georgia Department of Education.
Terrell High School’s graduation rate for 2015 was reported at 93.8 per cent.
And Terrell School Superintendent Robert Aaron and Terrell High Principal Douglas
Bell both said they were “ecstatic” about the graduation rate. “Terrell High School continues
to receive great results for reducing the drop-out rate, and increasing the number of students
graduating,” Superintendent Aaron said. Mr. Bell concurred, adding that “the graduation rate for
Terrell High released for 2014 (last year) was reported at 85.1 per cent, and for 2015 (this
year) it was reported at 93.8 per cent. It increased by almost nine per cent, or actually 8.7 per cent.

Superintendent Aaron, “Terrell High’s graduation rate for 2015 was significantly
higher than the state’s graduation rate of 78.8 per cent. “Members of our faculty and
administration are working very hard to educate all students to their maximum potential,”
he reported.“We will continue to make every effort to meet the needs of our students,” both
Superintendent Aaron and Mr. Bell added.
