Public School Choice/SES Information
In compliance with the requirements of NCLB, all students enrolled in a school that has reached year one of Needs Improvement has the opportunity to enroll in a school not designated as Needs Improvement. This transfer option is known as Public School Choice. Because the Irwin County School District has only one middle school Public School Choice option is not available.
Based on our most recent test scores, Irwin County Middle School did not make AYP. Since the law requires a school to make AYP two consecutive years before coming off the Needs Improvement list, ICMS will remain in Needs Improvement Year 2 for the 2011-2012 school year. As a result, the school will provide supplemental educational services (tutoring).
For more information on tutoring, please see your school principal or call Dr. Thad Clayton at 468-7485.
