Coosa High School increases CCRPI score to 4 pts above the State Average

 The Georgia Department of Education today released the College and Career Ready Performance Index, based on data from the 2013-2014 school year. Overall both Rome City Schools and Floyd County schools scored above state averages. Rome High School scored 72.2 and Floyd County high schools scored 72.2 to Georgia's 68.4.
Coosa High School was the only Floyd County or Rome City High School to increase the score over last year.  Coosa scored a 71.6 in 2014 up from 70.1 in 2013.  Armuchee had the county’s highest score of 74.8 but fell two percentage points from 2013’s 76.6.   Model High scored 68.5 down 9 percentage points  from 2013’s 77.3.  Pepperell High School’s score of 64.4 was a decline of 8 points from 2013’s 72.1 ..  The state average for High Schools was 68.4.
Georgia’s 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).
“While decreasing CCRPI scores are disappointing, they are not unexpected,” Superintendent Barge said. “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, implemented in 2012 to replace the No Child Left Behind (NCLB) Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP) measurement, after the U.S. Department of Education granted Georgia’s waiver from NCLB on Feb. 9, 2012. It measures schools and school districts on an easy-to-understand 100-point scale, helping parents and the public better understand how schools are performing in a more comprehensive manner than the pass/fail system previously in place under AYP.
