As you know, 2014-2015 school-year CCRPI results were released on May 3rd. Grady High School’s official CCRPI score decreased from a 71.1 for the prior year to a 70.5 for the current release. Due to a course number issue, Grady had seventy nine AP Language and Literature students who took the American Literature Milestones End-of-Course assessment, who were not part of our CCRPI calculation. On the school level, we found out about the course number discrepancy in February, and it was too late to successfully appeal to the GADOE.
If these students, who did take the American Literature Milestones End-of-Course assessment, were counted in our calculation, Grady’s CCRPI score would have been a 71.79 (this is based upon school level data analysis).
Hopefully, this information is helpful. Nevertheless, the school’s administration and staff are committed to continuous improvement, with a particular emphasis on increasing student growth and closing the achievement gap. Thank you and have a great week.
