Accountability Standards - CCRPI
College & Career Readiness Performance Index Replaces AYP
The performance of our school district and each of our 15 schools is measured by the state's College & Career Readiness Performance Index (CCRPI). The CCRPI replaced adequate yearly progress (AYP) as Georgia's school accountability tool in 2011.
CCRPI provides a level of achievement required for a student to enroll in two- or four-year colleges and universities and technical colleges without remediation, fully prepared for college level work and careers, including the United States military.The intent is for all students to graduate from high school with both rigorous content knowledge and the ability to apply that knowledge.
There are several key differences in how data is assessed for CCRPI versus AYP. First, CCRPI's accountability designations for schools are Priority, Focus, Reward and Alert. Criteria for placing schools in the first three categories is set by the U.S. Department of Education; however, the Georgia Department of Education sets criteria for the Alert list.
For the Reward, Priority, and Focus schools, the state will only evaluate Title I schools. Alert school designees will be both Title I and non-Title I schools. Thirteen of Bulloch County’s 15 schools are Title I schools. The schools will be assessed every three years, rather than annually, except for Alert schools. (Editor’s Note: Title I is the main source of federal funds that Bulloch County Schools receives. The funds are meant to enhance educational offerings for economically disadvantaged students.)
Second, subgroup populations have been reduced to 15 instead of 40. Third, AYP accounted for data from students enrolled for the full academic year (FAY) only; however, CCRPI evaluates all students regardless of time in the system and include scores from all subjects not just math and reading/language arts. Also, the graduation rate is calculated differently to more accurately account for students completing ninth through twelfth grade.
