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. A school can get up to 10 extra points out of the 110. 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.
