Most schools in Buckhead saw increases in College and Career Ready Performance Index (CCRPI) scores as the Georgia Department of Education today (April 21) released results from the 2013 and 2012 school years. However, Sarah Smith Elementary fell about three points, while Warren T. Jackson dipped by nearly a point.

The statewide accountability system was implemented in 2012 to replace the No Child Left Behind Adequate Yearly Progress measurement. Results from 2012 were recalculated and released today based on feedback from education partners and the public.

Statewide, both elementary and middle schools saw increases overall, while high school scores saw a dip. Overall, Atlanta Public Schools and Fulton County Schools increased scores at all three levels, while DeKalb fell in all three.
