The CCRPI scores were released today by the Georgia Department of Education. The CCRPI is Georgia’s statewide accountability measurement as required by the federal Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA). 

2019 and 2018 CCRPI scores are directly comparable. Scores from prior years are not comparable because the state made improvements to the CCRPI calculation as part of its State ESSA Plan. The 2018 CCRPI was the first to use the new calculation. 

The overall district score for the Chattooga County School District on the 2019 CCRPI was 73.6, with scores of 73.6 for elementary schools, 71.6 for middle schools, and 74.9 for high schools. 

 

The Chattooga County School District CCRPI score increased from 70.6 to 73.6. Notable gains were also made by Chattooga Academy whose CCRPI score increased from 28.0 to 43.8; Chattooga High School whose CCRPI score increased from 71.3 to 78.8; Leroy Massey Elementary whose CCRPI score increased from 59.8 to 70.5; and Lyerly Elementary whose CCRPI score increased from 71.3 to 80.3. 

Two schools in the District experienced a decrease in their CCRPI scores. Menlo Elementary’s score fell from 83.0 to 67.6 and Summerville Middle School’s CCRPI score fell from 81.8 to 76.4. 

 

*Chattooga Academy will not have an individual score beginning in 2019-2020.

School Climate Star Rating

As part of the CCRPI reports, the Georgia Department of Education released the 2019
School Climate Star Ratings for local schools. This rating is provided as an
informational tool for schools, parents, and communities. While it is reported alongside
the CCRPI, it is not included in the calculation that produces school and district CCRPI
scores.

School climate refers to the quality and character of school life – the “culture” of a
school. A sustainable, positive school climate fosters youth development and student
learning, which are essential elements for academic success, career-skill improvement,
and overall quality of life.

The School Climate Star Rating assesses the climate of a school – each school in
Georgia receives a one- to five-star rating, with five stars representing an excellent
school climate and one star representing a school climate most in need of improvement.

Superintendent Hosmer said, “I could not be more pleased with the progress we have made as a District and with the notable gains made by Chattooga Academy whose CCRPI score increased from 28.0 to 43.8; Chattooga High School whose CCRPI score increased from 71.3 to 78.8; Leroy Massey Elementary whose CCRPI score increased from 59.8 to 70.5; and Lyerly Elementary whose CCRPI score increased from 71.3 to 80.3. These improvements would not be possible without the hard work of our students, parents and school staff. However, we have also identified some areas that still need improvement, and we will not be content until all Chattooga County Schools are recognized as “A” schools.”
