CCRPI from the GaDOE
When the Georgia Department of Education (GaDOE) announced the College & Career Ready Performance Index (CCRPI) scores on
December 8, district administrators noticed that specific information for calculating a portion of the score was not
included in the released score for each middle school. Therefore, the middle school CCRPI scores showed an inaccurate
drop across the district. The issue was immediately addressed on December 9 by the district with the GaDOE
Accountability and Assessment Department and is currently being resolved.
Once the new data is incorporated into the recalculation, correct scores for CCSD middle schools will be released and
published by the GaDOE at the end of January. Based on internal preliminary calculations by district administrators,
the results show that the CCRPI score at every middle school, as well as the overall district score, will increase. The
corrected scores will be issued by the State within the next 45 days.
