The 2017 College and Career Readiness Performance Index (CCRPI) was recently released by the Georgia Department of Education and Worth County Schools showed they are among the best in Southwest Georgia.
Each school district and each individual school in the state of Georgia are assigned a CCRPI score annually, based on student performance on the Georgia Milestones and other intangible elements such as student attendance, school climate ratings, etc. Worth County Schools earned a CCRPI score of 78.3 for 2017, outscoring the state's CCRPI score of 75.0. The district's performance shows a three-year trend of improvement compared to the state. In addition, all of Worth's schools outperformed the state of Georgia. (see image below)
Worth County Primary School is not included in the data because Georgia does not assess students in grades K-2 currently.
Within the Southwest Georgia RESA, there are 18 high schools, 20 middle schools, and 37 elementary schools. Each of the WCSD school's CCRPI score is in the top 6 of those schools. WCHS catapulted to the 6th highest CCRPI score, WCMS held the 5th highest CCRPI score, and WCES is the 5th highest CCRPI for Southwest Georgia RESA.
All Worth County Schools increased their CCRPI scores. Student growth is happening at a high level of efficiency. Proficient rates are on the increase in most academic content areas.
"We are extremely proud of the direction all our schools are heading academically!", says Superintendent Bill Settle. "Our schools are performing at high levels because we have strong school leadership, excellent teachers, and a community that supports our schools 100%!"
