• 2020-21 School Support Model

    CCRPI We used CCRPI (Georgia Milestones) data to determine which schools will most benefit from specialized support. Schools that scored below 60 on the CCRPI scale for three consecutive years were identified to receive support through the school turnaround initiative.

    Currently, we provide all APS schools with robust foundational support, while eight receive next-level intensive support and eight are provided with an additional layer of targeted interventions above and beyond that.

    Continue reading to learn about our tiers of support and to see which schools are getting the extra needed attention.
