Most Cobb County schools showed gains in CCRPI scores in 2016

Cobb County Schools’ performance on the state report card showed some growth from 2015.

The results of the 2016 College and Career Ready Performance Index (CCRPI) released Thursday show high schools on average scored 88.2 compared to 83.9 in 2015. Middle schools scored 79.8

, an increase from 79 in 2015.

Elementary school average scores were 75.7, a drop from 77.3 in 2015.

The 2016 state average was 72.8 for elementary schools, 72.1 for middle schools and 76.1 for high schools, so Cobb schools were above that.


The Governor’s Office of Student Achievement has set 60 points as the minimum score for passing on the 0 to 110 point CCRPI, which is assembled by the Georgia Department of Education.

Schools get points for performance on a variety of measures, including graduation and attendance rates, STEM certification, inclusion of students with disabilities in general classrooms or participation in accelerated classes like Advanced Placement. By far the most important measure, though, is performance on state standardized tests, currently the Georgia Milestones.

See the results at the state education department's website.

The Atlanta Journal Constitution's education team will be analyzing the scores released today. Check later for updates.
