CCRPI/Career Performance Index

July 20, 2015

Dear Parent(s)/Guardian(s):

The Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) of 1965 requires that parents or guardians who have children attending a Title I school be notified of how well their school is preparing its students for college and/or a career, as well as the school’s designation under Georgia’s ESEA Flexibility Waiver.
Under the 2015 renewal of Georgia’s ESEA Flexibility Waiver, certain Title I schools continue to be designated as Reward, Priority, or Focus Schools. The Waiver allows the use of the College and Career Ready Performance Index (CCRPI) as the comprehensive report card for all schools in Georgia, providing a score between 0-100 for each school—measuring how well the school is doing in preparing its students to be successful in college and/or a career.

Creekside’s CCRPI score for the 2014 was 71. Additional information regarding the CCRPI can be found on the Georgia Department of Education website, http://ccrpi.gadoe.org/2014/.

Despite the progress made by our students, Creekside Elementary School has been designated as a Focus School under Georgia’s ESEA Flexibility Waiver for the 2015-2016 school year. This designation is based on the school’s 3-year average CCRPI Achievement Gap score, and we keep this designation until our school meets the exit criteria for Focus School status.

Creekside was identified as a Focus School because of the achievement gap between the lowest performing students and the state average.

As a Focus School, we will work together with parents/guardians, our community, and the Baldwin County School District to develop a school plan that delivers the necessary support to address the learning needs of our students and increase their academic success.

Creekside will be providing a Flexible Learning Program to address the achievement gap between these students.

An important part of Creekside’s success is parent participation and support in developing activities to improve student achievement. We hope that you will become involved in our school improvement work as we continue to monitor student achievement and set high expectations. If you are interested in participating in the development of our school improvement plans, being a part of our family engagement team or have questions about how you can better help your child in school, please contact Tracy Clark, Principal at 478-457-3301.

Thank you for all that you do to support your child’s education.

Sincerely,
Tracy H. Clark, Principal
