News and Announcements/Information:
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.
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.
The next HTMS School Council meeting will be
held on Wednesday, December 17 from 7:45 - 8:45 am in the
Conference Room at HTMS.
