2018 CCRPI scores announced
Georgia DOE

COVINGTON, Ga. - State School Superintendent Richard Woods released the Georgia College and Career Ready Performance Index for the 2017-2018 school year. The CCRPI measures schools and school districts on a 100-point scale. As there were numerous changes to the CCRPI instrument, this year’s scores cannot be compared to scores from previous years. 

“Unfortunately, we are not able to compare the 2017 CCRPI school and district results to the 2018 results,” Samantha Fuhrey, Newton County School System superintendent, said. “The 2018 results serve as baseline scores, again. The state’s accountability tool, the CCRPI, has not been the same since its inception in 2012. The calculation rules and measurement have changed significantly year after year. Until the state provides a consistent, reliable accountability instrument, the work of our students and staff cannot be measured accurately. Consistency from year to year with regard to what and how schools and systems are measured is critical to the planning and preparation of our teachers and leaders. Recently, the state school superintendent stated that the instrument will change, yet again, to provide a more, well-rounded tool. We are studying our results to ensure our students are prepared and positioned to be successful.”
