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.

Whether it’s reading, writing, speaking, listening, or decipering, each day provides opportunities for us to deepen our literacy skills. These calendars can be used by families during the summer to keep those literacy skills sharp and to be ready to learn, grow, and share--even when school is not in session. Suitable for any age, we encourage you to use these calendars and mark off the activities you do. Parents, grandparents, and caregivers can join in the fun, too! Each student who completes and returns these to school can redeem them in their school media center for a small treat. We hope everyone will participate. HAPPY READING!
