CCRPI – College and Career Readiness Performance Index
The College and Career Ready Performance Index – CCRPI – is Georgia’s annual tool for measuring how well its schools, districts, and the state itself are preparing students for the next educational level. It provides a comprehensive roadmap to help educators, parents, and community members promote and improve college and career readiness for all student. The CCRPI includes four main components: Achievement, Progress, Achievement Gap, and Challenge Points. These components, encompassing multiple indicators, are combined for a total CCRPI score on a scale of 0 to 100.
Valley Point’s 2016 score was 67.5. Valley Point also received 5 stars for the state’s climate rating, which on a five star scale is a great climate rating. We look toward continued growth in both of these ratings over the next school year. The 2017 score is not yet available, but we always strive to improve at every level. We are proud of our students’ achievement and progress and will continue to strive to help every student achieve at his/her potential.

This has been a very stressful week in our schools and community. The aftermath of the shootings in Florida along with the false rumors and fallacious threats spreading on social media, plus the horrific incident that occurred at Dalton High School on Wednesday, has created a stressful environment in which to teach and to learn. We hope this will let you know what steps we are taking to keep your children safe and secure in all of our schools.
