“What we’re seeing in this year’s CCRPI scores largely reflects the performance trends we saw in our Georgia Milestones results,” APS Superintendent Dr. Meria Carstarphen said. “Specifically, we’re building a strong foundation at the elementary and middle school levels, but we know more work needs to be done to ensure all of our students across all grade levels graduate ready for college and career. At the same time, it’s important that we not look to any one indicator or any one number. We must look at multiple measures over time, including Georgia Milestones, graduation rates, student growth percentiles, climate star ratings, and other indicators in order to get a full picture of our students’ overall academic experience.”
