Cobb County’s public schools finished slightly above the statewide average on the Georgia Department of Education’s annual measurement of each school’s academic performance, which was released Tuesday.
Nineteen Cobb schools scored better than 90 on the index while six Cobb schools received scores below 60. Schools that receive a CCRPI score lower than 60 for three consecutive years are eligible for state takeover under Gov. Nathan Deal’s proposed Opportunity School District.
