Fulton County Schools improved its state report card scores across elementary, middle and high school levels.

The Georgia Department of Education on Thursday released results of the 2016-17 College and Career Ready Performance Index, a school report card that includes a variety of measures, with test performance the most important. 

The scores are based on a 100-point scale, with up to 10 possible bonus points. 

Fulton’s overall score of 78 beat the statewide average by three points. It is also up 3.3 points from the district’s score last year.

Superintendent Jeff Rose touted the results as the district’s “highest performing year ever.”
