The Dawson County Schools System recently announced its overall district CCRPI score after results were released from the Georgia Department of Education in October.

The district received an overall district CCRPI score of 78.2, which is above the 75.9 state average. Dawson County ranked fourth out of the 15 Pioneer RESA districts.

The College and Career Ready Performance Index, or CCRPI, is a comprehensive school improvement and accountability measure for Georgia schools. 

CCRPI was first implemented in Georgia in 2012 as an alternative to No Child Left Behind’s Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP).  It was redesigned for the 2017-2018 school year and provided a simpler and more streamlined model.  This redesigned model remained in place for the 2018-2019 school year.

The purpose of CCRPI is to provide an objective measure of the extent to which schools, districts, and the state are succeeding in providing high quality opportunities and outcomes for students. 

“The data provided by CCRPI is comprised of information we continually track throughout the school year.  Instructional decisions are made to ensure we are addressing the strengths and improvement areas revealed in this information,” said Tracey Compton, Director of School Improvement and Accountability.

These results are used for communication and continuous school improvement.  The goal is to support students and to prepare them to graduate high school ready for college, career, and lifelong learning. 

“The CCRPI data is an important tool for driving instruction and continuous improvement.  Our system team continues to support our schools in driving school improvement to ensure high quality educational experiences and achievement,” said Superintendent Damon Gibbs. “I am proud of the continuous work and dedication of our entire team and of the students we serve.”

CCRPI is comprised of five components:  Content Mastery, Progress, Closing Gaps, Readiness, and Graduation Rate (high schools only).  Each CCRPI indicator, component, and overall score is reported on a 0-100 point scale.
