District and School Report Cards

student achievement

Each year the Georgia Governor's Office of Student Achievement generates a report card for each district and school in Georgia.  Districts and schools receive a letter grade based on district/school performance on measures of student achievement and school completion. The letter grades and full reports for the Lowndes County Schools District and individual schools may be found here on the GOSA Georgia School Grades Reports site.

GOSA creates full reports including the district/school single College and Career Readiness Performance Index (CCRPI) score, School Climate Star Rating, Financial Efficiency Star Rating, per pupil expenditures, demographic information, and performance on a variety of academic measures with comparisons to the district and state. Those reports may be accessed by clicking on the district or school name on the webpage linked above.

LCS Enters Attendance Protocol Agreement

To reduce truancy and to provide a uniform set of procedures for addressing excessive student absences, the Lowndes County Schools and the Valdosta City Schools have entered into a protocol agreement with Judge James Council, Jr., and the Lowndes County Juvenile Court.

Excessive absences can trigger notifications, conferences, or referral to the Lowndes Drug Action Council Truancy Intervention Program. Further absences may result in referral to the Department of Children's Services, revocation of student driving privileges, referral to Juvenile Court, or possible criminal prosecution of the parent under the Georgia compulsory school attendance statute.

Please read: "Lowndes County Juvenile Court Protocol Agreement for Truancy in Schools."
