College & Career Readiness Performance Index

GA DOE Releases 2019 CCRPI Results

On Friday, October 25, the Georgia Department of Education released 2019 CCRPI (College & Career Ready Performance Index) scores. The CCRPI, which was redesigned in 2018, utilizes calculations and indicators to measure school and district performance on a 100-point scale. The indicators include Content Mastery, Progress, Closing Gaps, and Readiness. High schools have an additional indicator – Graduation Rate. As a result of the redesign, the 2018 data serves as baseline data and 2019 data can be compared only with the 2018 version of the CCRPI.

Thomaston-Upson posted a district score of 74.9, an increase of 6.7 over last year’s score of 68.2.  At 74.9, the T-U School District was only slightly below the state average of 75.9 and came in third among the school districts in the Griffin RESA, which include Butts, Fayette, Henry, Griffin-Spalding, Pike, Lamar, and Newton districts. Fayette and Henry were the only districts out scoring Thomaston-Upson.

Overall scores in the middle and elementary categories earned 3rd place for the Griffin RESA district. Upson-Lee Middle School scored 72.5, which was higher than the state average of 72.1. Upson-Lee Elementary and Upson-Lee Primary combined for an overall elementary score of 77.0, which was just below that state score of 77.1. Upson-Lee High School posted a score of 73.9, lower than the state average of 77.0.

CCRPI reports include a school climate star rating for all schools in the district. This component is not included in the overall score. School climate ratings use the following indicators to obtain a 1-5 star rating, with 5 stars being indicative of a most excellent school climate: survey of teachers, students, and parents; student discipline; safe and substance-free learning environment; student and faculty/staff attendance. All Thomaston-Upson Schools posted excellent climate scores, with ULHS, ULMS, and ULES earning 4 stars and ULPS earning a perfect 5 stars.
