Eight Floyd County schools beat the odds in 2018, performing better than statistically expected on the College and Career Ready Performance Index (CCRPI).

The CCRPI is Georgia’s statewide accountability system. It measures schools and school districts on a 100-point scale based on multiple indicators of performance.

The Beating the Odds analysis predicts a range within which a school’s CCRPI score is statistically expected to fall – given the school’s size, grade cluster (elementary, middle, and high, not including primary schools and the college and career academy), student mobility, and student demographics (including race/ethnicity, disability, English learners, and poverty). If an individual school’s actual CCRPI is above the predicted range, then that school beat the odds.

“I am very proud of our teachers, students, and administrators. Being a “Governor’s Office of Student Achievement Beating the Odds School” is a great accomplishment,” said Floyd County Schools Superintendent Dr. Jeff Wilson. “Our staff is working hard to continue to improve student growth and student achievement in each of our schools. We are moving the bar in Floyd County Schools with a focus on student success through knowing, valuing, and inspiring every child. We have a great deal of which to be proud, but the best is yet to come!”
