DCN Generic school bus
The Georgia Department of Education released the first scores from the redesigned College and Career Ready Performance Index (CCRPI) in October, and Dawson County Schools received an overall district CCRPI score above the state average. The CCRPI is a comprehensive school improvement and accountability measure for Georgia schools. It was first implemented in Georgia in 2012 as an alternative to No Child Left Behind’s Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP) and was redesigned for the 2017-2018 school year to provide a simpler and streamlined model. The Dawson County School System received an overall district CCRPI score of 79.9, 3.3 points higher than the state average of 76.6.
