Academic Performance, CCRPI

College and Career Ready Performance Index

Accountability Standards

The performance of our school district and each of our 15 schools is measured by the state's College & Career Readiness Performance Index (CCRPI). The CCRPI replaced adequate yearly progress (AYP) as Georgia's school accountability tool in 2011.

CCRPI provides a level of achievement required for a student to enroll in two- or four-year colleges and universities and technical colleges without remediation, fully prepared for college level work and careers, including the United States military. The intent is for all students to graduate from high school with both rigorous content knowledge and the ability to apply that knowledge.

The Index supports the state’s core educational principles:

  • exemplary student achievement that prepares all for success in college and careers

  • effective teaching and leadership in all schools

  • innovative school improvement, particularly in low performing schools

  • reduction in the duplicative reporting requirements for local school districts

CCRPI's accountability designations for schools are Priority, Focus, Reward and Alert. Criteria for placing schools in the first three categories is set by the U.S. Department of Education; however, the Georgia Department of Education sets criteria for the Alert list.

For the Reward, Priority, and Focus schools, the state will only evaluate Title I schools. Alert school designees will be both Title I and non-Title I schools. Thirteen of Bulloch County’s 15 schools are Title I schools.  The schools will be assessed every three years, rather than annually, except for Alert schools. (Editor’s Note:  Title I is the main source of federal funds that Bulloch County Schools receives. The funds are meant to enhance educational offerings for economically disadvantaged students.)

Subgroup populations have been reduced to 15 instead of 40.  The CCRPI evaluates all students regardless of time in the system and include scores from all subjects not just math and reading/language arts. The graduation rate is calculated differently than the AYP to more accurately account for students completing ninth through twelfth grade.

A school and district’s overall score will be made up of three major areas: Achievement (70 points possible), Progress (15 points possible) and Achievement Gap (15 points possible). In addition to the three major areas, schools can receive “Challenge Points” to add to their score (up to 10 points). They can receive these points if they have a significant number of Economically Disadvantaged students, English Learner students and Students with Disabilities meeting expectations. They can also receive points for going beyond the targets of the CCRPI by challenging students to exceed expectations and participate in college and career ready programs. Schools also receive ratings based on their financial efficiency and school climate, but these ratings will be for the public’s information only as it will not factor into the overall CCRPI score.
