    2nd Year! FCS Earns Highest and Only 5 Star Financial Rating in Metro-Atlanta and for Large Districts

    For the second year, Forsyth County Schools has earned the highest financial efficiency rating from the Georgia Department of Education. The 5-out-of-5 Star Rating is the highest and only 5 Star among Metro-Atlanta districts and large districts (7,000+ students) in Georgia.


    The Financial Efficiency Star Rating provides a measure of a local school district’s per-pupil spending in relation to the academic achievements of its students. Specifically, the rating is based on a three-year average of per-pupil spending, which is then associated with the district’s CCRPI score. According to the Georgia Department of Education, each district receives a rating ranging from one-half star to five stars; a five-star district can be described as having strong academic outcomes and lower levels of expenditures in comparison with other districts. This year’s ratings are based on data from the 2013-14, 2014-15, and 2015-16 academic years.
