The Georgia Department of Education has released its College and Career Readiness Performance Index (CCRPI) this week. Under the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA), these measurements are now required under federal law and it means good news for schools in Bryan County.
Bryan County schools continue to excel, improving their score to 85.4 for the year 2018-19 which is well above the state average. This reflects the hard work and commitment by teachers, students, and educational departments in the district.
The average score for schools in the State of Georgia is 75.9 and Bryan County has exceeded these across the board:
|Bryan County Schools||Georgia State Average|
The overall score of 85.4 makes Bryan County one of the highest-scoring districts state-wide and scores increased across all measurements and at all levels including their 4-year graduation rate with a score of 89.12, with the state 4-year graduation average being 82.02.
Improvements in literacy were seen across all high schools alongside other metrics like readiness for college/career, and pathway completion. Accelerated enrollment had also improved, as well as attendance numbers in elementary and high schools.
“We are proud of the improvements made and all of the hard work by our students, teachers, and leaders.” said Dr. Paul Brooksher, Superintendent of Bryan County Schools.
Under the federal Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA), which replaced the No Child Left Behind (NCLB), states are required to have a “statewide accountability system” that provides information on how well schools are performing. The CCRPI is Georgia’s accountability system.
