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.

Garrett Middle School is excited to open the doors to our community for parents, both veteran residents as well as new to Austell, to visit our school and tour our amazing campus.
