Thomaston-Upson School System CCRPI scores are among the top in the Griffin RESA district, according to the College and Career Readiness Index reports released Tuesday, May 3, by the Georgia Department of Education. The Thomaston-Upson District average is 75.4, almost equal to the state district average of 75.5. Upson-Lee High School scored 77, exceeding the state average of 75.8. Upson-Lee Middle School posted a score of 77.8, also above the state of Georgia average of 71.2. Upson-Lee North scored a 74.5, slightly below the state average of 76. (Primary scores are not being reported by the state, which is why ULSE does not have a CCRPI report.)
Georgia schools implemented the CCRPI in 2012, replacing the Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP) measurement used under No Child Left Behind. CCRPI measures schools and districts on a comprehensive 100-point scale.
Dr. Maggie Shook, Superintendent, stated, “We are pleased with the 2015 CCRPI scores, which include calculations from the new, more rigorous Georgia Milestones Assessments. However, we know that there is still work to be done and progress to be made. Our administrators and teachers will now take and analyze this data to determine areas of strengths and weaknesses and use this information to drive school and school district improvement efforts.”
Of the eight school systems in the Griffin RESA, Thomaston-Upson posted the 2nd highest CCRPI scores. Fayette County was the only school system that scored higher than Thomaston-Upson’s 75.4, posting a score of 81.9.
