What does the new ratings show? It means that once the data is analyzed it should be shared with parents, homeowners associations, community associations, churches, youth groups and businesses. The South Cobb community needs to know how our schools can achieve scores in the 90 percentile and above. We as a community must understand and know that it trully takes a village to raise a child. We must have a realistic plan and must involve any and everyone who lives, provides a service or a business in the community.
