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.

Parent Visitation: School Tours

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.

You will have an opportunity to see where our 6th, 7th and 8th Grade core courses are being taught as well as where our Connection classes are being held, such as Drama, Band, Chorus, Art, Physical Education, Read 180 and Math Connect.

Garrett Middle School Tours will be available each Tuesday from 10:00 AM-12:00 PM.

We Believe:

  • that all students are capable of meeting or exceeding state standards in all disciplines given adequate time and instructional support.
  • that it is the shared responsibility of teachers, staff, administrators, students, parents, and the community to ensure learning and social success for all students.
  • that the collaborative efforts of our school community will enable each student to become a responsible, contributing citizen.
