test scores

All Monroe County schools outperformed last years’ scores on the state CCRPI tests, pushing Monroe County to No. 9 in the state. Monroe County’s test scores ranked in the Top 10 out of nearly 200 school systems in Georgia even as the system had a higher percentage of poor and special needs students than any other system in the Top 10.

The Georgia Department of Education released the 2018-19 school district College and Career Ready Performance Index (CCRPI) scores last week. This is the second year the redesigned standardized tests have been used.

Monroe County school superintendent Dr. Mike Hickman stated, “The CCRPI scores for our district and for each school demonstrate the planning, preparation, and overall performance of our students, teachers, and support staff. The consistency illustrated in these results show that our collaborative professional learning efforts across the district are continuing to pay dividends.”

All five schools in Monroe County also received a 5 Star rating (the highest rating) on School Climate, a measure of student discipline, stakeholder surveys, and staff and student attendance.
