Notification of School Status


August 16, 2016

Dear Parent(s)/Guardian(s):

The Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) of 1965 requires that parents or guardians who have children attending a Title I school be notified of how well their school is preparing its students for college and/or a career, as well as the school's designation status under Georgia's ESEA Flexibility Waiver.

Under the 2015 renewal of Georgia's ESEA Flexibility Waiver, certain Title I schools continue to be designated as Reward, Priority, or Focus Schools.  The Waiver allows the use of the College and Career Ready Performance Index (CCRPI) as the comprehensive report card for all schools in Georgia, providing a score between 0-100 for each school-measuring how well the school is doing in preparing its students to be successful in college and/or a career.

The Randolph- Clay Middle School CCRPI score is 51.7 for 2016. This is an improvement in growth since the previous score of 41.9 (an increase of 9.8 point gain). Although the school is currently performing below the target state score of 60, causing the school to be termed an Opportunity School, Randolph Clay Middle School does not have an official designation status of Focus or Priority. More information about the details of the score and designations can be found on Georgia Department of Education's website

At Randolph-Clay Middle School, we take pride in the teaching we provide for our children. Our teachers and staff members work very hard to meet the needs of all students to ensure they achieve at their highest potential. We hope that you will become involved in our school improvement work as we continue to monitor student achievement and set high expectations.  If you are interested in participating in the development of our school improvement plans, being a part of our family engagement team or have questions about how you can better help your child in school, please contact Sherrod Willaford, Principal at (229) 732-2790 or by e-mail at

Thank you for all that you do to support your child's education.
