An APS Pilot School

Recommendation to Transition Fulton Academy of Excellence Away From Pilot School Status

Dear Fulton Academy of Excellence Community

On behalf of the Joint Steering Committee (JSC), we hope you and your families are safe and well. We wanted to provide you with an update on the JSC’s School Quality Review (SQR) for Fulton that was completed this school year. These reviews are required for all APS pilot schools every three years. After reviews are completed, recommendations are made to the APS Board of Education on whether schools should retain their pilot status. Pilot status allows schools greater flexibilities in areas including calendar, curriculum, budget and staffing. In exchange, pilot schools must show higher levels of student achievement.

Estimados miembros de la comunidad de Fulton Academy of Excellence:

En nombre del Comité Directivo Conjunto (Joint Steering Committee / JSC), esperamos que usted y su familia se encuentren bien. Queremos brindarle los informes más recientes sobre la Revisión para la Calidad Escolar (School Quality Review / SQR) que el Comité Directivo JSC realizó este año para la escuela Fulton. Se requiere llevar a cabo estos repasos cada tres años para todas las escuelas en estatus de escuela piloto. Después de realizar los repasos, se hacen recomendaciones ante el Consejo Directivo de Educación de APS (APS Board of Education) para decidir si la escuela debe mantener su estatus de escuela piloto. Tener el estatus de escuela piloto permite a una escuela tener más flexibilidad en los aspectos del calendario escolar, plan de estudios, presupuesto y la dotación escolar. A cambio de esto, las escuelas piloto deben mostrar niveles más altos de rendimiento estudiantil.
