Seven APS Schools Earn State Accountability Honors

Governor’s Office of Student Achievement presents awards in four categories – Platinum, Gold, Silver and Bronze to schools with highest performance or greatest gains on CCRPI

ATLANTA – Seven schools in Atlanta Public Schools today are among those recognized statewide for achieving the highest performance or the greatest gains on the College and Career Ready Performance Index (CCRPI), according to data released today by the Governor’s Office of Student Achievement (GOSA).

GOSA develops award criteria under the Single Statewide Accountability System (SSAS) and presents them for approval to the State Board of Education. Awards are given to schools with high academic performance and/or high academic growth.

For the 2017 awards, GOSA used CCRPI data from the three most recent school years to determine SSAS awards in two categories: Greatest Gains and Highest Performing. Each award category has four tiers: Platinum, Gold, Silver, and Bronze.
