Marietta City Schools – Demonstrates Progress on the
College and Career Ready Performance Index (CCRPI)
MCS outperformed state averages at all three levels, elementary, middle and high school
MARIETTA, GA -– Marietta City Schools (MCS) demonstrated progress on the 2013 College and Career Ready Performance Index. The CCRPI is Georgia’s statewide accountability system, implemented in 2012. It measures schools and school districts on a 100-point scale, helping parents and the public better understand how schools are performing.
The system improved to a score of 80.2 points for 2013 from 77.4 points earned in 2012. MCS outperformed state averages at all three levels: elementary grades earned 82.5 points, middle grades earned 84.3 points, and Marietta High School earned 72.7 points. The overall district high school score currently reported, 71 points, remains inclusive of students that attended residential treatment centers.
“The CCRPI provides our schools with achievement information on a variety of indicators,” stated Superintendent Emily Lembeck. “Our teachers are working hard to meet the needs of all students as expectations increase and more rigorous standards are taught. We are pleased with this progress and look forward to addressing areas in need of further improvement.”
The System’s graduation rate is an indicator in the CCRPI calculation that showed improvement. Lembeck further expressed, “Although there is more work to be done, I’m especially mindful of the positive changes in our graduation rate. Graduating students is our ultimate responsibility and we need to continue working collectively to Graduate Marietta.”
