Cedartown Middle School Student Incentives


 Attendance Incentives 2015-2016

Students with passing grades and no more than 5 excused absences (no unexcused) for the year will be exempt from completing final exams (worth 10%) on two days during the last week of school. These students will be assigned work from online classrooms instead in order to receive credit for these days. Students with perfect attendance will not be penalized for missing exam days if the online work submissions are completed.

State Testing Recognition Incentives
- Students passing the state test (starting 2015-2016) will receive an excused absence from school on the last day prior to Christmas Break the following school year (starting 2016-2017). Instead they will complete an online classroom assignment and will not be counted as absent.


CMS Q2 Student Incentives


ASSET Test Prep

Students enrolled in a 9th grade academic course this year at CMS have the opportunity to take the ASSET test on Tuesday, February 23rd. Passing this test grants students the eligibility to take dual enrollment courses, and our 8th grade students can take this test now to jump start their dual enrollment career in high school as early as this coming school year. The test will be offered on CMS campus for free.

To access free student material to prepare for the ASSET test, click on the logo below and choose "ASSET Test Study Guide" and "ASSET Test Preparation" on the right under RESOURCES. Because this is a college entrance examination, students should spend time studying and preparing for this test as much as possible! GOOD LUCK!

Georgia Parent Survey

 

Georgia is the first state in the nation to include school climate as an early indicator in its academic accountability system, the College and Career Ready Performance Index (CCRPI).  The School Climate Star Rating is a diagnostic tool to determine if a school is on the right path to school improvement.  The climate rating is made up of four main components:  School Climate, Student Discipline, Safe and Substance-Free Learning Environment, and Attendance.  Students, Parents, and Teachers are requested to complete surveys to assist in determining the first component - School Climate.  Please take a moment to complete the survey for your child's school.
