Fayette County schools ‘beat the odds’ in 2016


Fifteen of Fayette’s schools beat the odds in 2016, performing better than statistically expected on the College and Career Ready Performance Index (CCRPI).

The CCRPI is Georgia’s statewide accountability system. It measures schools and school districts on a 100-point scale based on multiple indicators of performance.

The Beating the Odds analysis predicts a range within which a school’s CCRPI score is statistically expected to fall – given the school’s size, grade cluster, student mobility, and student demographics (including race/ethnicity, disability, English learners, and poverty). If an individual school’s actual CCRPI is above the predicted range, then that school beat the odds.

Fayette’s 15 schools are among 1,037 throughout the state that beat the odds in 2016. The schools are Braelinn Elementary, Fayetteville Elementary, Flat Rock Middle, Kedron Elementary, McIntosh High School, North Fayette Elementary, Oak Grove Elementary, Peachtree City Elementary, Peeples Elementary, Rising Starr Middle, Robert J. Burch Elementary, Sandy Creek High, Spring Hill Elementary, Starr’s Mill High, and Whitewater Middle.

Seven of these same schools are among the 271 statewide that have beaten the odds in each of the past five years. They are Braelinn Elementary, Flat Rock Middle, Kedron Elementary, McIntosh High, Oak Grove Elementary, Peeples Elementary, and Rising Starr Middle.
