Pirate Family,

The Georgia Department of Education released the 2019 College and Career Readiness Performance Index (CCRPI) scores today. Congratulations to our Pickett's Mill Pirates for our 91.4 CCRPI score. Our score increased by +1.3 points from the previous year! 

Our CCRPI score of 91.4 places Pickett's Mill 13th out of the 68 elementary schools in the Cobb County School District. CCRPI scores are comprised of several components including content mastery, progress, closing gaps, readiness and school climate. We are especially proud of our content mastery score of 88.5 and our perfect score of 100.0 on progress, which measures the growth demonstrated by our students from year to year on the Milestones in ELA and Math, as compared to their peers in their grade level from across the state.

Congratulations to our feeder schools; Durham Middle School, who raised their CCRPI score +3.4 to a total of 87.9, and Allatoona High School, who raised their CCRPI score +2.1 to an overall score of 91.8. We are proud of our Wildcat and Buccaneer feeder schools!

This is a special community and we are honored to have the chance to educate your children, while providing them with a great experience here at Pickett's Mill!
