Walton County School District gave the 2016 College and Career Ready Performance Index scores for local schools following a release by the Georgia Department of Education of all the scores for the state. According to a press release from WCSD, the overall scores for Walton County’s elementary, middle and high schools surpassed the state scores.
“We are proud that Walton County continues to exceed the state CCRPI score across all three levels,” Aassistant Superintendent of Curriculum and Instruction Rusty Linder said in the press release. “We will continue to evaluate our scores and progress from year to year, both at the district level and individual school level, to make improvements and continue in our pursuit of excellence.”
Individually, however, Harmony, Monroe and Walker Park Elementary, Carver Middle and Monroe Area High School are below the state average.
CCRPI is an accountability system, implemented in 2012, that replaces the No Child Left Behind Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP) measurement. The 100-point scale reportedly helps parents and the public have a better understanding of how schools are performing than the previous pass/fail system of AYP.
Walton County School District results are as follows:
|Atha Road Elementary||81.4|
|Bay Creek Elementary||85.3|
|Walker Park Elementary||71.6|
|Walnut Grove Elementary||74.1|
|Monroe Area High||68.3|
|Walnut Grove High||76.1|
The Walton County School District serves around 14,000 students in 15 schools including nine elementary schools, three middle schools and three high schools. For more information, please visit www.walton.k12.ga.us.
