The newly revised state report card system, known as CCRPI, was released on Monday.
Trion City Schools received an overall district grade of 88.8 (B) out of 100 points.
The 2018 CCRPI uses an updated calculation approved as part of Georgia’s state plan for the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) which replaced the No Child Left Behind Law.
2018 scores are NOT comparable to any prior year. Any comparison, or statement that a school or district’s scores have “risen” or “dropped,” is incorrect.

Dr. Phil Williams, superintendent of Trion City Schools stated, “we are thrilled and encouraged with our district CCRPI scores. Our teachers are doing a tremendous job of preparing our students and focusing on strategies so all students are successful. I believe that we are doing a very good job of identifying our overall goals and the doing whatever it takes to achieve those goals. Having a great strategic plan is very important, but more important is to have a classroom teacher that is committed to “Be the One” who makes that difference in a child’s life. We have a school system full of those teachers. Our expectations are at the highest level and the competitive atmosphere within our school system is everywhere you look from teachers, students, administrators, parents, and our school board members. We are very happy that we have the highest district CCRPI score in the Northwest Georgia area, and we plan to celebrate our successes. We are not satisfied though. We have room for improvement, and we will focus on our weaknesses and work towards a better score next year.”
Scott Crabbe, principal of Trion Middle School stated, “the entire Trion Middle School staff, students, and community are extremely excited about this year’s CCRPI score of 93.6 and being one of the top middle school scores in the State of Georgia. All research will say that the number one factor for positive student achievement is the teacher in the classroom, and that is certainly the case here. Our teachers do a tremendous job of understanding the needs of individual students and working with them to set and meet academic goals. Our school strives to always have a clean line of direction toward our goals and a clear focus on what is necessary to get us there.”
