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, 2020-2021 or 2021-2022 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.

This is the last score the district received in 2018-19. Due to COVID, the state has not given CCRPI scores in the past few years. We anticipate having an updated score in Fall 2023.
