Education: State, Gainesville accountability results increase at all levels

By AccessWDUN staff

State School Superintendent Richard Woods announced Thursday that 2017 College and Career Ready Performance Index scores show improvements across the board in Georgia's elementary, middle, and high schools.

The state score for Georgia's high schools was 77, up from 75.7 in 2016. The middle school score increased to 73, up from 71.5 in 2016, and the elementary school score increased to 72.9 (up from 71.7 in 2016).

Locally, Gainesville City School System officials say while it is important to note that CCRPI calculations change each year thus limiting the use of true year-to-year comparisons, the district's scores increased at all levels.

As a district, the Gainesville City School System scored a 72.2 on the CCRPI, increasing 4.1 points from last year’s score of 68.1. Combined elementary scores increased 3.4 points; middle school scores increased 4.5 while high school scores increased 5.4 points. In addition to each school experiencing gains on their overall achievement scores, they also each experienced gains in the percentage of students reading on grade level at the 5th, 8th, and high school levels. 

All schools in the system received either a four or five star rating on their climate rating. Climate rating is calculated using data from the Georgia Student Health Survey, Georgia School Personnel Survey, Georgia Parent Survey, student discipline data and attendance records for students, teachers, staff, and administrators. 

The CCRPI is Georgia's statewide accountability system, implemented in 2012 to replace No Child Left Behind's Adequate Yearly Progress measurement, after the U.S. Department of Education granted Georgia's waiver from NCLB.
