Results on the 2013-2014 Georgia Writing Assessment showed a 6% decrease in scores from 92% (Fall 2012) to 86% (Fall 2013). Currently, subgroups for Maynard H. Jackson High School include All, Black, Students with Disabilities, Socioeconomically Disadvantaged, White, and Hispanic according to CCRPI (College and Career Readiness Performance Index) guidelines. Students with disabilities are the only subgroup in which a significant discrepancy in student achievement was noted. Therefore, strategies to address academic performance in this subgroup are included in the assessment.
