Announcements: SCCPSS CCPRI Scores are on the Rise!


SCCPSS CCPRI Scores are on the Rise! 


The Georgia Department of Education released 2017 College and Career Ready Performance Index scores today which show improvement across the board in the state’s elementary, middle and high schools.  Those increases are reflected locally in the district’s overall score which rose 2.4 points over last year’s score from 64.5 to 66.9.


There is good news for all grade levels across the district with middle grades increasing scores by more than five points and surpassing elementary grades for the first time with a score of 65.5. Elementary grades score increased by more than two points over last year from 62.6 to 64.8, but the highest overall CCRPI score remains at the high school level with 72.5!


The majority of district schools met or exceeded their annual 3% improvement target and among the 12 schools where CCRPI scores were below 60 for 3 consecutive years, three schools – Haven, Southwest Middle and West Chatham Middle - have exited the list!  Of the remaining nine schools, six posted gains over last year, with Brock Elementary posting an impressive 12 point gain!  Thunderbolt Elementary, whose students are now attending the new School of Humanities at Juliette Gordon Low Elementary, also posted a 12 point gain in the last year that school was open.


SCCPSS Superintendent Dr. Ann Levett says, “The improvement shown in these new CCRPI scores was achieved through the hard work of teachers and staff in both the Central office and our schools who come to work every day with the goal of helping our students succeed in the classroom and beyond.  That dedication and commitment is reflected not only in our already high-performing schools, but in our schools that have struggled as well, showing that those schools are on track to continue making gains each year.  Our teachers continue to focus on the work of educating all students at the highest levels.”


The CCRPI is Georgia's statewide accountability system, implemented in 2012 to replace No Child Left Behind's Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP) measurement, after the U.S. Department of Education granted Georgia's waiver from NCLB. It measures schools and school districts on a 100-point scale based on multiple indicators of performance like achievement and progress. The SY 2016-17 data reflects the final year of data under the existing CCRPI calculation, as the new ESSA-aligned CCRPI calculation takes effect in SY 2017-18.
