School systems throughout the state of Georgia now embark on a new accountability measurement system known as College and Career Ready Performance Index (CCPRI). This new system takes the place of Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP). Georgia received a waiver from No Child Left Behind last year. Instead of using Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP) to measure school performance, school systems will now use a much more extensive measure called the College and Career Ready Performance Index (CCRPI), which looks at multiple indicators. A numerical score out of 100% will be given to every school in the state. While that will be much easier for everyone to understand, the details behind it are not as easy. The Georgia Department of Education is refining the model and more details will be available very soon. For an overview of the College and Career Ready Performance Index, click on this link or visit the DOE website at www.gadoe.org.
A numerical score out of 100% will be given to every school in the state and will be based on the following:
1) Weighted average of
---Achievement Gap Closure
2) Achievement is the predominant factor
3) Exceeding the Bar Indicators (Earn extra points for excellent work)

The CCGPS for English language arts, mathematics, and literacy in science, history/social studies, and technical subjects will ensure that all Georgia students have an equal access and opportunity to master the skills and knowledge needed for success beyond high school. Effective implementation of the CCGPS requires support on multiple fronts, including strengthening teacher content knowledge, pedagogical skills, and contextualized tasks for students that effectively engage 21st Century learners. The standards create a foundation to work collaboratively across states and districts, pooling resources and expertise, to create curricular tools, professional development, common assessments, and other instructional materials.
