    You made it! Congratulations to all of the third, fourth, and fifth graders for successfully finishing

    the 2013 CRCT this week. You worked hard all

    throughout the year preparing for the test and

    you made it through. Much like the tests that

    adults must go through in life, had it not been for

    the education and situations we would not be in

    the place we are today. Good or bad; learning

    does not stop just because we have graduated

    from school. The learning continues throughout

    each day we live.

    When it comes to education I believe some of

    the most dedicated professionals are here in

    Fulton County. Not just because it is where I

    work but it is because we provide extra learning

    opportunities for our children as well as

    educators as well. So today I want to encourage

    community members, parents and students to

    always run after a higher piece of knowledge!

    Knowledge is the key to a bright future and can

    open many doors for you. As long as you are

    doing your best and keeping a positive attitude

    nothing and no one can keep you from

    succeeding in life!

    Ms. Golden

    Strategic Plan 2017

    This is the school systems roadmap for how Fulton County

    Schools aims to improve student achievement over the next

    five years. Three goals serve as the districts measure for

    long-term student success, which is that students will graduate

    on time and be ready for college or the workforce.

    Graduation Rate 90% of Fulton students will

    graduate on time

    College Readiness 85% of Fultons seniors will be

    eligible for admission to a University System of Georgia

    college or university

    Career Readiness 100% of Fulton's graduates will

    be work-ready certified

    These are big goals, but they are attainable, said

    Superintendent Avossa. Our strategic plan is focused on

    improving outcomes for all students, and the only way to do

    this is to set measurable goals and put supports in place to help
