    Dear APS Families:

     

    Welcome to a new school year! I am honored to be your new Superintendent. I am 10 weeks into my new job, and I am delighted to share that we are off to a better start. Our students answered the “Day One: Be There.” call by coming to school on the first day, and in fact, over 25,000 APS students had perfect attendance during the first month of the school year! 

     

    As we continue our attendance campaign this year, I am asking for your help to ensure your child is in class and ready for instruction everyday this school year. In APS, we have students—especially at the high school level—who miss one day every two weeks. That adds up to one month of missed instruction every year. Over five years, it adds up to about half a school year of missed instruction. If students miss school, they can’t learn and they will not be ready for the new Georgia Milestones test, a far more rigorous test that is replacing the CRCT and EOCT this year.

     

    This week also marks another Big 10 - the 10th anniversary of our Atlanta Public Schools State of the Schools celebration. It was my first one and if you were unable to attend on Tuesday, I hope you will go online to hear the update on the state of our district at http://new.livestream.com/k12aps/events/3374824.

     

    Over the last few weeks, I have had the opportunity to visit many of our schools in APS. I have been energized by some of the best teaching I have ever seen, and I remain optimistic about what the future holds for us.  At the same time, I am very clear that we have much more work ahead of us if we are going to deliver the excellent education that your children deserve.

     

    While our students and staff have been hard at work, our Atlanta Board of Education members and I also have been working.  As we chart a new course for Atlanta Public Schools, we have drafted a new charge (mission and vision) for the district. This is what we do every day and what we aspire to be:

     

    • Our Mission: Through a caring culture of trust and collaboration, every APS student will be ready for college and career.

    • Our Vision:   A high-performing school district where students love to learn, educators work to inspire, parents are engaged, and the community has trust in the district. We welcome your feedback on our work at https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/draftvisionmission.

     

    As we embark on this journey together, I am working diligently to foster a transparent and collaborative environment for our families. To that end, I want to encourage you to get involved this year.  Whether by volunteering at your child’s school, participating in the important decision-making process around selecting a school system operating model and flexibility option, or participating in one of our new citizen advisory or oversight committees, I hope you will get engaged!  You can learn more about these opportunities and see more of what we have been up to these past few weeks by visiting www.atlantapublicschools.us or following my blog at www.atlsuper.com

     

    I looking forward to being your partner in helping to fulfill the hopes and dreams of our children. Welcome back and have a great school year!
    Sincerely,
     
    Meria J. Carstarphen

  • The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) affords parents and students who are 18 years of age or older ("eligible students") certain rights with respect to the student's education records.  These rights include the right to provide written consent before the school discloses personally identifiable information (PII) from the student's education records, except to the extent that FERPA authorizes disclosure without con­sent.

    One exception which permits disclosure without consent is disclosure to school officials with legitimate educational interests.  A school official is a person employed by the school as an ad­ministrator, supervisor, instructor, or support staff member (including health or medical staff and law enforcement unit personnel) or a person serving on the school board.  A school official also may include a volunteer or contractor outside of the school who performs an institutional service of function for which the school would otherwise use its own employees and who is under the direct control of the school with respect to the use and maintenance of PII from education records, such as an attorney, audi­tor, medical consultant, or therapist; a parent or student volunteering to serve on an official committee, such as a disciplinary or grievance committee; or a parent, student, or other volunteer assisting another school official in performing his or her tasks.  A school official has a legitimate educational interest if the official needs to review an educa­tion record in order to fulfill his or her professional responsibility.

    Also, upon request, the school discloses education records without consent to officials of another school district in which a student seeks or intends to enroll, or is already enrolled if the disclosure is for purposes of the student’s enrollment or transfer. 

    For more information about Student Records and disclosures, including directory information, please refer to the Student Handbook, and Board Policy JR and Administrative Regulation JR-1(R).
