District 2015-2016 CCRPI Results Show Increase for Monroe County
The Georgia Department of Education (GADOE) released the results of the College and Career Ready Performance Index (CCRPI) for the 2015-2016 school year. The CCRPI is Georgia’s statewide accountability system that was implemented in 2012. This system measures schools and districts on a 100 point scale, helping parents, educators, and the public better understand how schools are performing throughout the state. The results below show an increase for Monroe County from a district score of 73.1 in 2014-2015 to a district score of 75.5 in 2015-2016.
“We are extremely proud of the CCRPI district score increase for our school system. Even though there is room for improvement moving forward, we are excited about the gains we are seeing as a district. As we continue to focus on individual student success in all of our schools, we hope to continue our improvement efforts in the future. We are proud of the continued work of our teachers and staff at each of our schools.” said Superintendent Dr. Mike Hickman.
The district CCRPI score of 75.5 in 2015-2016 exceeded the state average for districts, which was 73.6. Monroe County Schools saw increases at all three levels: elementary, middle, and high in 2015-2016.
The high school CCRPI score showed the greatest increase, increasing from 65.4 in 2014-2015 to 72.8 in 2015-2016.
“We’re excited about the improvement made at Mary Persons. The 2016 CCRPI score of 72.8 represents an 11.3% increase over the 2015 CCRPI score,” said Mary Persons High School principal, Dr. Jim Finch. “This increase is a testament to the work of our teachers, students, and our entire faculty. This increase is also an indication of a supportive community and Board of Education. We are glad to see the increase, but we are looking forward to the opportunity for improvement in 2017.”
