Last March, CINS’ hosted the Local School Councils of the schools in the Grady Cluster. They presented a stimulating discussion about how they are raising student achievement at their respective schools. As part of the discussion, CINS invited APS to present the school performance data for the schools. As a follow-up, the audience requested that we host a meeting in 2013 to present and discuss the performance data when it was released in 2013. The data is out and we are pleased to host Part II of our analysis and discussion. If you want to hear about your school’s data and how APS is using it, you will not want to miss this meeting.
CINS’ community meetings are open to the public.
