Camden County Schools Earns 4 Star Financial Efficiency Rating
The Georgia Department of Education in collaboration with the Governor’s Office of Student Achievement recently released the 2016 Financial Efficiency Star Ratings (FESR) for all Georgia school districts. School districts earn from one half to five stars on the "Star" rating intended to reflect the financial efficiency of districts relative to academic achievement. Camden County was one of only 33 districts to earn 4 stars or better in the state.
The FESR was developed to makes clear the connections between expenditures in a district and academic achievement in Georgia. The ratings are calculated using the three year average for both per pupil expenditures and academic. A district earning a favorable Financial Efficiency Star Rating indicates lower per pupil expenditures relative to the academic performance of students. In 2016, Camden County Schools’ 3-year average CCRPI was 83.4 and the PPE was in the 26th percentile at $7,921.46. A 4-star rating by the Department of Education is evidence of the efforts of the Board of Education and administration to provide students in Camden County with great academic opportunities while remaining fiscally responsible to the community. The three year average per pupil expenditures for all districts in Georgia is $8,659.81 while the 3-year average CCRPI score is 73.6.

The four achievement levels on Georgia Milestones are Beginning Learner, Developing Learner, Proficient Learner, and Distinguished Learner. The general meaning of each of the four levels is provided below:
Beginning Learners do not yet demonstrate proficiency in the knowledge and skills necessary at this grade level/course of learning, as specified in Georgia’s content standards. The students need substantial academic support to be prepared for the next grade level or course and to be on track for college and career readiness.
Developing Learners demonstrate partial proficiency in the knowledge and skills necessary at this grade level/course of learning, as specified in Georgia’s content standards. The students need additional academic support to ensure success in the next grade level or course and to be on track for college and career readiness.
Proficient Learners demonstrate proficiency in the knowledge and skills necessary at this grade level/course of learning, as specified in Georgia’s content standards. The students are prepared for the next grade level or course and are on track for college and career readiness.
Distinguished Learners demonstrate advanced proficiency in the knowledge and skills necessary at this grade level/course of learning, as specified in Georgia’s content standards. The students are well prepared for the next grade level or course and are well prepared for college and career readiness
