CCRPI: 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

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.
