2018 Milestones Results

posted Aug 8, 2018, 6:44 PM by Tobie Jones   [ updated Jan 17, 2019, 5:10 AM ]

Dear Students, Parents, Faculty, Staff, and Community Members,

In this week’s Jackson Herald, the headlines include a story summarizing the results from the 2018 Milestones End of Grade Assessments and the 2018 End of Course Test results. Though the results were reported accurately for the End of Grade (Grades 3, 5, and 8), the results were NOT reported accurately for the 2018 End of Course Test results at Commerce High School.

Commerce High School is on a 4x4 traditional block schedule which means that students earn a full year of credit each semester. The results reported in the newspaper only tell part of the story. I can only assume that the newspaper pulled their results from the Department of Education website (which only reports results from spring semester). Please find below the accurate overall (year-long) results for Commerce High School.

  • Ninth Grade Literature- 11% of students scored at Level 1 (14 of 133) NOT 19.6%

  • Algebra I- 22% of students scored at Level 1 (31 of 144)

  • American Literature and Composition- 13% of students scored at Level 1 (16 of 122) NOT 22.8%

  • Biology- 19% of students scored at Level 1 (18 of 96) NOT 30.9%

  • Economics- 17% of students scored at Level 1 (15 of 87) NOT 18%

  • Geometry- 10% of students scored at Level 1 (8 of 82) NOT 25%

  • US History- 23% of students scored at Level 1 (27 of 120) NOT 44%

We understand that we still have work to do at every grade level; however, our students and faculty/staff members/administrators are working too hard to report inaccurate data. Please let me know if you have questions.

7th Grade - Georgia Grown Trip

posted May 4, 2018, 9:42 AM by Tobie Jones   [ updated May 18, 2018, 12:02 PM ]

Attention Parents of 7th Grade Students- As you know, our seventh graders are on a field trip today with a Georgia Grown theme.  Due to I-985 being closed north of Jaemor Farms, our seventh graders are headed back to Commerce Middle School earlier than expected.  At this point we do not have all of the details of the incident that has occurred to close the interstate.  All of our seventh grade students on the trip are safe, and they are headed back to CMS.

Food Service - End-of-year Balances

Announcement for End-of-year Account Balance Round-up from Rich Friedman/ School Nutrition Director

As we finish up April and quickly approach the final weeks of school in May, the Cafeteria Managers at each school have the unenviable task of trying to collect payment owed for meals served during the year. This is not a pleasant job and we don’t enjoy it –BUT like any business we have to collect what’s owed or we risk not covering our expenses. This, in turn, makes it difficult to continue to offer the best food and service that we can. We at Commerce City Schools Nutrition Department are proud of our program and enthusiastic participation from students and staff on a daily basis bear out the good work we do. There are official penalties and consequences for delinquent accounts but we prefer to ask nicely and depend upon the good will and sense of fair play from the families in our community. As always, if your family has financial issues that make timely payment difficult, give us a call and we will do our best to bring community resources to your aid.
