CCRPI Shows Student Achievement Growth

The Colquitt County School District 2023 College and Career Ready Performance Index (CCRPI) scores show significant improvements in Content Mastery at the elementary level, with the highest elementary component scores in the Closing the Gaps (100%) and Progress (89.3%) categories. CCRPI is the Georgia Department of Education’s tool for annually measuring how well schools and the state are helping students achieve their goals.

“Since 2021, the district has used benchmark assessments to track progress in reading--the essential skill for all subjects-- adopted new English language arts resources in all grades, and provided significant professional learning opportunities for teachers to expand their literacy instruction toolboxes,” Superintendent Ben Wiggins said. “The most recent CCRPI data highlights student growth in reading that stems from an all-in effort by our teachers and school leaders to help students meet grade level expectations that will positively impact their future.” 

The Content Mastery category addresses whether students achieve at the level necessary to prepare for the next grade, college, or career. This component includes achievement scores in English language arts, mathematics, science, and social studies on Georgia Milestones and Georgia Alternate Assessment 2.0. The Colquitt County School District’s elementary school score of Content Mastery for all students increased 2.58% in English language arts, 4.14% in mathematics, and 6.75% in science. The middle school score of Content Mastery for all students increased 6.43% in English language arts and 2.77% in mathematics. The high school score for Content Mastery in mathematics improved by 2.77%.

The CCRPI Closing Gaps category sets the expectation that all students and all student subgroups make improvements in achievement rates. This component allows schools to demonstrate progress in improving student performance among all student subgroups. The Closing Gaps category was not calculated in 2022 due to pandemic-related data limitations; the last year it was calculated was 2019. In comparison to 2019, the district’s elementary school English language arts score for Closing the Gaps increased from 76.6% to 100% in 2023, revealing significant progress in teaching and learning initiatives centered on reading instruction at the local level.

The CCRPI Progress category measures how much growth students demonstrate in English language arts and mathematics and how well English learners are progressing toward English language proficiency. The district’s elementary Progress score in English language arts increased from 77.2% in 2019 to 86.85% in 2023. The middle school language arts score increased from 86.86% in 2019 to 87.45% in 2023. The elementary mathematics score in the Progress category increased from 77.08% in 2019 to 89.47% in 2023, and the elementary level score for Progress towards English proficiency was scored 100% for the second year in a row.

The CCRPI no longer includes an overall 0-100 score for schools, districts, or the state. Each component -- Content Mastery, Progress, Closing Gaps, Readiness, and Graduation Rate for high schools-- still has a 0-100 score. The change was made to increase transparency and provide a more complete picture of school performance. For the full state release on CCRPI and related data, please visit
