Which Georgia schools are in danger of state take over?
Gov. Nathan Deal proposed the Opportunity School District in the 2015 session of the General Assembly. It would allow the state to take over chronically failing schools, make improvements, turn them into a charter school or shut them down. Though the legislation passed, the deal requires voter approval.
If voters approve the Opportunity School District deal, the state would likely start taking over schools beginning with the 2017-18 school year basing its selection on College and Career Readiness Performance Index (CCRPI) data from the 2014-15, 2015-16 and 2016-17 school years.
