After seeing some gains last year, Georgia schools saw a decrease in College and Career Performance Index (CCRPI) scores for the 2013-2014 school year. Elementary schools saw a one-year decrease in scores from 77.8 to 72.6 (-5.2), middle schools saw a one-year decrease in scores from 74.6 to 73.2 (-1.4) and high schools saw a one-year decrease in scores from 71.8 to 68.4 (-3.4), according to a press release from the Georgia Department of Education.

“While decreasing CCRPI scores are disappointing, they are not unexpected,” Superintendent John Barge said in a press release. “This index is still relatively new and demands different areas of focus for our schools. Improvements will not happen overnight, but the CCRPI is giving them a roadmap to tailor an education that is student-centered and one that will ensure they are college and career ready.”
The CCRPI is Georgia’s statewide accountability system, starting in 2012 and replacing the No Child Left Behind (NCLB) Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP) measurement, after the U.S. Department of Education granted Georgia’s waiver from NCLB in February 2012.
