Oconee County Schools Ranks First In Georgia In CCRPI Content Mastery

Oconee County Schools ranked No. 1 in the state in Content Mastery in the 2023 College and Career Ready Performance Index released this week by the Georgia Department of Education

OCS recorded a 98.2 score for the elementary schools, a 96.4 with the middle schools, and a 98.1 for the high schools. The statewide averages for elementary, middle, and high schools were 64.7, 60.9, and 65.0, respectively.

Content Mastery addresses whether students are achieving at the level necessary to be prepared for the next grade, college, or career. It includes achievement scores in English language arts, mathematics, science, and social studies based on the Georgia Milestones Assessment System and the Georgia Alternate Assessment.

In the CCRPI Readiness category, OCS ranked No. 2 in the state for elementary schools (93.3), No. 3 for high schools (89.5), and No. 6 for middle schools (91.5). The state averages were 82.3 for elementary, 82.0 for middle, and 71.4 for high schools.

Readiness focuses on literacy and student attendance, as well achievement in fine arts or world language for elementary; fine arts, world language, physical education/health, or career exploratory for middle; and accelerated enrollment, pathway completion, and college and career readiness for high.

“I am pleased to see continued positive trends in our CCRPI data, reflecting the dedication and progress of our students and educators,” Superintendent Jason Branch said. “Our commitment to fostering academic excellence is reflected in the report, showcasing the collective efforts of our school community toward preparing students for successful futures.”

The CCRPI no longer includes an overall 0-100 score for schools, districts, or the state. This change was first implemented in 2022 under an addendum received from the U.S. Department of Education and made permanent this year in Georgia’s Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) plan. Each CCRPI component still has a 0-100 score.

Under the federal Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA), each U.S. state is required to have a statewide accountability system that complies with federal requirements, providing information on how well schools are performing. The CCRPI meets that requirement in Georgia and satisfies requirements for school accountability in state law.
