College and Career Ready Performance Index (CCRPI)

Annual Notification of Academic Progress

The federal Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA), also referred to as the No Child Left Behind Act, requires that the performance of schools across the nation is evaluated, with a goal of helping each student reach grade-level proficiency in reading and math by 2014. In Georgia, elementary schools are assessed on the percentage of students who meet and exceed state standards on the Georgia Criterion-Referenced Competency Tests in Reading/English-Language Arts and Mathematics. In order for schools to show Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP), the school and each subgroup must meet the goals established in both subject areas. Subgroups include students with disabilities, economically disadvantaged pupils, English language learners, and students from a variety of ethnicities.

In 2011-2012, the Georgia Department of Education applied for a waiver seeking relief from the federal No Child Left Behind Act. As a result, the United States Department of Education agreed to use a new system, the College & Career Ready Performance Index (CCRPI), to report the progress of Georgia's public schools. This index is currently under development and will include ratings regarding assessment results, financial status, and school climate. In January 2013 the Georgia Department of Education released the final list of 2011-2012 indicators on which schools will receive a CCRPI score; a copy of these can be downloaded using the file below.
