The Jasper County Charter System utilizes Flexible Service Models (FSM's) to provide academic interventions and acceleration activities to students based on their RIT Score from the MAP(Measures of Academic Progress) assessment that is given three times per year in the Fall-Winter-Spring. Each school has developed a unique schedule and process for delivering FSM's that best fits the needs of the students at their grade levels.
For more information about FSMs at each school, check out our FSM Google Doc.
Dear JCCS Parent or Guardian,
As our schools work to inspire and motivate every student to achieve individual success, our teachers need information to make instructional decisions. The MAP test is allowing teachers to know students’ skills and areas of need.
Measures of Academic Progress® (MAP®) tests determine your child’s instructional level and measure academic growth throughout the school year, and from year to year in the areas of math and reading.
MAP tests are unique in that they are adaptive tests your child takes on a computer. That means that the test becomes more difficult the more questions your child answers correctly. When your child incorrectly answers a question, the test becomes easier. Therefore, your child takes a test specifically created for his or her learning level. In addition, these tests are aligned with the Georgia Standards of Excellence and allow students to understand what they need to know on the Georgia Milestones Assessment.
Your child’s MAP results are reported in RIT scores. This is a different type of score than a typical test that provides a percentage correct. It is also different from many tests that provide results based on your child’s score compared to others in his or her grade. Instead, the RIT score is an equal-interval scale, like feet and inches, that is independent of grade level. As a result, we can easily measure growth in learning. This type of score increases the value of the tests as a tool to improve student learning because it enables teachers to recognize where to focus attention specifically for your child’s learning needs. Based on the results of these scores, students may receive additional classroom support, be referred for gifted program consideration, or have the opportunity to participate in an accelerated learning model. During parent conferences, the results of the MAP test will be reviewed. Teachers will also
share with you how your child may participate in an innovative or flexible learning approach designed around his or her specific skill strengths or needs.
JCCS is excited to look at the needs of individual learners so we can better prepare all students for life beyond school.
Thank you for your involvement in your child’s education.

"The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) (20 U.S.C. § 1232g; 34 CFR Part 99) is a Federal law that protects the privacy of student education records. The law applies to all schools that receive funds under an applicable program of the U.S. Department of Education."--ED.gov
"The Children's Internet Protection Act (CIPA) was enacted by Congress in 2000 to address concerns about children's access to obscene or harmful content over the Internet. CIPA imposes certain requirements on schools or libraries that receive discounts for Internet access or internal connections through the E-rate program – a program that makes certain communications services and products more affordable for eligible schools and libraries. In early 2001, the FCC issued rules implementing CIPA and provided updates to those rules in 2011." --FCC.gov
