CCRPI Report

What does this mean?
CCRPI (College and Career Ready Performance Index) is a comprehensive school improvement, accountability, and communication platform for all educational stakeholders that will promote college and career readiness for all Georgia public school students.

Due to widespread school closures and absences related to COVID-19, the United States Department of Education approved Georgia's request to waive statewide assessment, accountability and reporting requirements. Therefore, there are no CCRPI reports for the 2019-2020 or 2020-2021 school years.

Why is it important? 
CCRPI measures how well schools, districts and the state are preparing students for college and career. It evaluates schools based on test scores, student growth, student activities and graduation rates.
