Heard Middle and Ephesus Elementary earn state recognition

(Franklin, GA) —  Heard County Middle School, Centralhatchee Elementary, and Ephesus Elementary were each recognized recently by the Georgia Department of Education for their outstanding achievements in education by ranking within the top 5% of Title I Schools within the state of Georgia.

This ranking comes after a comparison between all Title I Georgia Schools using the College and Career Ready Performance Index score (CCRPI).

This Performance Index score is a compilation of Content Mastery, Progress, Closing Gaps, Readiness, and Graduation Rate (high schools only).

The College and Career Ready Performance Index – CCRPI – is Georgia’s tool for annually measuring how well its schools, districts, and the state are helping students achieve their goals.

It provides comprehensive information to help educators, parents, and community members promote and improve college and career readiness for all students.

The purpose of CCRPI is to provide an objective measure of the extent to which schools, districts, and the state are succeeding in providing high-quality opportunities and outcomes for students.

Due to these three schools ranking within the top 5%, they will be eligible to apply for the National Title I Schoolwide Distinguished School Award.

This award is determined based on schools who perform within the top 5% of Title I Georgia Schools, demonstrate exceptional student performance for two or more consecutive years, reduce academic gaps between student groups, and demonstrate excellence in serving special populations of students.
