PTA TAKES ACTION  - Help start testing and evaluation reform in Georgia

Senate Bill 364 (SB364), by Senator Lindsey Tippins, is a bill which would reduce student state-mandated testing and reduce the weight of these tests in teacher and administrator evaluations.  Georgia tests students at three times the Federally required amount.  SB364 would reduce standardized testing by 25% during a stud ent's 3-12 year career- from 32 tests to 24. SB364 also addresses how these tests are used in teacher and administrator evaluations.  Currently, standardized tests account for 50% of a teacher's and 70% of an administrator's evaluation.  SB364 would reduce these to 30% and 40%, respectively.  

SB364 unanimously passed the Senate and is now in the House.  Please take a few minutes to contact your Representative and ask him or her to support reducing the focus on standardized testing in Georgia - let them know you SUPPORT Senate Bill 364.

Remember to Use your Publix Scan Cards!

Do you know that the CHS PTSA has received over $14,000 from Publix over the years?!  That is a lot of money - and it takes no effort at all.  Just use your scan card every time that you make a purchase at Publix.  If you do not have a scan card, you can get one at the front desk.  They are available throughout the school year.  You or your student can pick up extra cards for grandparents, friends and neighbors to use.  Everyone buys groceries, and having these cards scanned when you shop at Publix is an easy way to help CHS PTSA!
