The most up-to-date information will always be published at wcsga.net.

We are pleased to provide you with your student’s Georgia Student Growth Model (GSGM) Report that provides information on your student’s academic progress during the 2016-2017 school year. Georgia’s growth model has been in place for several years and, as educators, we have been taking advantage of this information to improve your student’s educational experience. You have likely already heard about this growth model as it relates to the College and Career Ready Performance Index (CCRPI) and the Teacher and Leader Keys Effectiveness Systems (TKES and LKES). In short, this report represents yet another way in which Georgia is seeking to improve the level of student achievement across our state.
