T-U 2016 CCRPI Scores Among Top in Our Area

For the second consecutive year, Thomaston-Upson School System CCRPI scores are among the top in the Griffin RESA district, according to the College and Career Readiness Index report released Thursday, December 8, by the Georgia Department of Education. The Thomaston-Upson District average is 75.6, two points higher than the state district average of 73.6. This achievement follows last month’s announcement that Upson-Lee High School’s graduation rate had exceeded the state average for the second year in a row, posting an 84.5% graduation rate for 2016, significantly higher than the state of Georgia overall graduation rate average of 79.2%.

Thomaston-Upson’s 2016 district elementary CCRPI score is 76.6. T-U’s 2016 district middle school CCRPI score is 74.6. The district high school score came in at 70.3. (Primary scores are not being reported by the state, which is why ULSE does not have a CCRPI report. Their third grade scores, however, factor into the district elementary score.)

Georgia schools implemented the CCRPI in 2012, replacing the Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP) measurement used under No Child Left Behind. CCRPI measures schools and districts on a comprehensive 100-point scale.

Of the eight school systems in the Griffin RESA, Thomaston-Upson posted the 2nd highest CCRPI scores again this year. Fayette County was the only school system that scored higher than Thomaston-Upson’s 75.6, posting a score of 87.4. Griffin RESA school district scores in descending order are:
