SCCPSS saw a rise in both Middle School and High School Scores, but a decline in Elementary Schools.

CCRPI scores are reported on a 100 point scale and are based on five separate components – Content Mastery, Progress, Closing Gaps, Readiness and, for high schools, Graduation Rate. While the state averages for Content Mastery, Readiness, and Graduation Rate increased for elementary, middle, and high school, there were slight decreases in Progress scores, and larger decreases in the Closing Gaps component – which requires schools to meet elevated achievement targets for all subgroups.

SCCPSS Highlights:

  • SCCPSS exceeded the state score in middle grades and high school
  • The district's high school grade band improved in all CCRPI components, including a 25 point increase in Closing Gaps.
  • The district earned a perfect score of 100 in middle grades Closing Gaps, along with a high school Closing Gaps score of 97.2.
  • Middle grades Readiness, high school Progress, and high school Graduation Rate all scored above 80.

About the CCRPI

Under the federal Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) – the replacement for No Child Left Behind (NCLB) passed in 2015 – states are required to have a “statewide accountability system" that provides information on how well schools are performing. Similar accountability systems were required under the No Child Left Behind waivers many states operated under before ESSA was passed, but ESSA gives states more authority over the process.
