Carroll Identified as a Low Performing School

I hope the school year has started successfully for all of you. For the second consecutive year, the state of North Carolina has assigned letter grades to each school in the state.

Our school system does not believe a single grade can accurately reflect the many ways in which your child grows in our schools. For that reason, the Wake County Public School System has created individual School Progress reports that quickly and easily offer a one-page summary of Carroll Leadership in Technology Magnet Middle School.

You can find the summary for our school at http://www.wcpss.net/schoolreportcards.

In North Carolina, schools assigned a single letter grade of D or F are considered low-performing unless the school as a whole exceeds its expected academic growth. Unfortunately, Carroll received D did not meet expected growth.

Please know that this description in no way reflects our belief about your child’s potential and performance. Our staff cares deeply about your child’s daily progress and is happy to answer any questions you might have.

Also be aware that we will develop an improvement plan that specifically addresses how the school will improve both the school performance grade and our school growth score. The plans for all of the schools with this identification will be presented to the School Board on Tuesday, October 20. After that, they will be made available for review before being submitted for state and local school board approval.

Thank you for your support of our school.
